Referencing the industrial architecture of South
Fremantle, this home is predominately made up
of recycled brick, timber and zincalume cladding.
Red brick walls act as the base of the building, an
ode to the terraced houses found in the home’s
local area. Juxtaposing the rustic bricks is a timber
ceiling, while the upper portion of the home is
clad in zincalume, similar to the deep roofs of
nearby warehouse buildings. Unlike many dark,
stuffy old terrace houses, this design uses high
ceilings and glass windows and doors to maximise
natural light and ventilation, while the two central
courtyards of the home add a hint of greenery to
the industrial-meets-contemporary design.
This home was in the running for a 2015 Australian
Institute of Architects Award. Yun Nie Chong & Patrick

WHITE HERE, RIGHT NOW
White might seem like the boring choice for interiors, but it is often the most versatile. Apart from
giving the owners the ability to dress up each room any way they want, white walls and floors add
depth to the room, and enhance light. For definition, try adding hints of colour through vanities,
cabinets and soft furnishings, or include a feature wall in a natural pattern like marble for a subtle
contrast. Mirrors help to further brighten the bathroom, as do ceiling-to-floor windows, which
frame views and allow an endless stream of light to flow onto bathers soaking in the 320kg Italian
stone bath from Ceramica Cielo.
