Birch plywood is one of Bercy Chen’s preferred interior wall and ceiling cladding materials. “Its modularity and uniformity make it incredibly versatile,” Chen says of the material, which his team speced for this house. The firm relies on US Lumber Brokers, a supplier that not only ships the wood by the palette or truckload, but also negotiates with local lumberyards to help architects secure better prices.
