What's this Japanese facade technique called?

e.mson

Hi all,

I'm interested in more info about the Japanese slatted facade technique shown in attached images, but don't know what to search for as I can't find the name for it. Anyone know the name of this specific facade type?

Best,

Erik

thanks for your reply, shou sugi ban is the technique of charring the wood. but what I'm looking for is the name of the facade structure with broad overlapping horisontal planks and thinner vertical ribs on the outside.

bare beamed siding is a name that keeps popping, but I can't find any explanation of the technique anywhere.

I call it beautiful.  (But I know that doesn't help here.)

I think its just a board and batten technique.

Quite possibly everything is fitted together with wooden pegs or other wood to wood joinery and no nails or other metal at all as is common in traditional Japanese woodwork.
