High-quality, long-lasting materials and proven construction methodologies were selected for their time-tested qualities.
Exterior finishes of black timber battens, white-painted recycled bricks and a velvety grey cement render collectively form a sophisticated material palette that is understated yet timeless.
The colour palette is monochromatic to accentuate the subtle textural qualities of the building materials.
From the street, the restraint palette is not meant to overwhelm the streetscape but rather sit quite comfortably in this leafy neighbourhood pocket.
To contrast the light and open feel of the shared family spaces, the private rooms adopt a moodier persona, with darker colour schemes.
The library/study is representative of this with a deep feature-window steel reveal, that doubles as a bay window, coloured black.
The dark tone continues with matte black cabinetry and a graphite black quartz hearth for the open fireplace.
Offsetting these dark tones are the warmer wood-veneered joinery and strategic ambient lighting.
This application of timber on joinery extends throughout the house to tie all these pieces in a consistent material and visual language.
A cement-rendered feature wall in the dining space mirrors the velvet finish of the exterior walls, strengthening the relationship and visual consistency between inside and out.
