All set in concrete – 9 celebrations of this undersung, magic material

Concrete is a mercurial material with myriad applications from whole house construction to benchtops – pore over these diverse examples of its use

1. Concrete house – Querkopf Architekten

Do homes get any bolder or more striking than this contemporary steel and concrete home? Not just practical, this German home's concrete materiality defines its aesthetic.



2. Concrete + cedar – Studio Dwell

Concrete forms the base of this house and defines the public spaces, while the stained cedar upper volume defines the private spaces along with other accents of the house.


3. Concrete pool – Freeman Ball

For this project, tilt-panel shuttered concrete was used to form the front-yard pool as well as the house. Even the privacy wall beside the outdoor lounge/pool is in the same preconstructed, monolithic material.


4. Concrete block interior wall – Residential Attitudes

This Mid-Century modernism-inspired home includes a garage constructed of industrial concrete block work – and its rugged presence is left exposed and celebrated on the interior too.


5. Concrete floor – Pepper Design

Forming a key part of this kitchen's look, Pepper Design replaced and updated the flooring with poured concrete terrazzo and introduced fresh plastering, floor to ceiling steel framed windows and contemporary light fittings.


6. Concrete block wall and splashback ­– Sarah Burrows Design

Here, Sarah Burrows Design constructed a cinder block wall to divide the scullery and kitchen at the same time highlighting the rawness of the home’s architecture.


7. Concrete vanity – Giorgi

An expansive fibre-reinforced concrete vanity with formed basins runs wall to wall in this master ensuite.


8. Concrete island – Fu Tung Chen

An angled, oxide red cast-concrete island delineates this kitchen from the dining area and doubles as a servery – you don't have far to look to see other concrete applications either, including the inner benchtop and flooring.


9. Replicating concrete for benchtop and floor tiles – Sontag

Imitation is the greatest form of flattery as the Caesarstone Rugged Concrete benchtop in this kitchen attests – the floor looks like concrete as well, but we're pretty sure it's in concrete-look tiles.
