The architectural form was born from the clients Japanese heritage which inspired a carefully crafted home. The dwelling was designed as a modular light weight timber framed building clad in Weathertex panels. Two types of panels were used, the Exteriorboard was used sporadically in a matrix style feature geometric patterning and Selflok Ecogroove weatherboards laid vertically elsewhere. The design incorporated a number of Spotted Gum decks including the drama filled entry boardwalk. The decks not only provided a literal connection from home to ground but also reflects the site’s bush heritage.
Weathertex is an Australian owned and Newcastle manufacturer of external timber cladding. The cladding is available in both traditional an contemporary profiles and with a zero carbon footprint is a great and natural product alternative for any home.
The builder for this project was Admire Build Pty Ltd and the home was constructed under an ABIC-SW 2008 contract with McCullum Ashby acting as contract administrator throughout the contract duration.
