Using commercial construction material injects drama into this new home

​​​​​​​The home’s tilt slab concrete walls have a decorative board-formed finish. The textured surface was created by concrete poured and set in timber formwork, the latter stripped away to reveal imprints of the original plankwork. The sunken lounge is a feature of the open-plan entertainer’s space and features an elongated gas fireplace and wool carpet. A David Trubridge pendant here – together with another matching lamp over the dining table – provides a design feature and local task lighting.
