This new residence has been designed by Allan
Davies Trevor Chudleigh Architects to make the
most of a steeply sloping site, while maximising
the owners’ outlook over the greenery to the city
via an inviting balcony deck.
Low-maintenance living was key for the
clients, who wanted to amplify their time enjoying
their residence rather than spending their
weekends with tedious upkeep.
To combat the challenge, as well as building
upon a steep site, heavily insulated framed
construction was used to provide a light and
floating platform for living in the sky. The wall
treatment is Colorbond mini corrugated
wall cladding, with CSR’s Cemintel decorative
cladding to add texture, while keeping with the
Rich natural finishes such as clear-finished
jarrah weather boards have only been used where
there is good weather protection and low levels
of strong sunshine.
In feature areas, BE Projects introduced
CSR’s Cemintel decorative cladding to add
interest and an alternative surface to various
portions of the building.
Internal finishes consist of Essastone
benchtops, custom built-in cabinetry, cedar-
lined ceilings, Tasmanian Oak architraves,
blackbutt flooring and LED stainless finish
downlights to the living areas.
This experimentation with these
contrasting materials works towards creating
a contemporary aesthetic that at the same
time exudes homely warmth.
