OUTSTANDING DESIGN

Designed by local Architect Jarrod Midgley this project included
everything from initial excavations to putting the
number on the letter box.
Separated into two main areas: garage, work shop and
office wing and also the main living areas. Both are connected
via a bridge that floats about 500mm above the surrounding
garden.
All areas of the house and land were designed to perfectly
complement each other and fit in with the overall vision.

EXTERIOR
The house is clad in vertical Cedar boards as well as 20mm
thick Lime Render plaster finished in a way to produce an
earthy, natural feel. Either can look dominant depending
on the aspect.
Exposed aggregate concrete is a common theme linking
the outdoor living areas to the east with the BBQ area to
the rear where an automated Awning provides solace from
the sun.
Even the utility areas have been well designed with the trailer
sheet and clothes line hidden from view by Cedar slats
screens matching the house.

INTERIOR
The exterior Lime Render walls are continued internally to
provide flow from the outside in. Vertical Cedar is also introduces
internally where it is used to line the full height of
the stairwell.
Polished concrete floors, floor to ceiling Aluminium joinery,
award-winning home automation and spray lacquered joinery
finishes the interior to the highest quality.
