Coming Home To Something Different

Concrete is a favourite material with architects seeking to create stylish, award-winning homes.

Versatile concrete elements can provide the required structural capacity, help define space, and also be used to present a sculptural shape or decorative surface.

Concrete is unique amongst contemporary building materials in that its pre-set plastic state allows it to take the shape of the form into which it is cast.

Intricate off-form shapes, patterns and textures, along with a range of colours and effects, enables concrete to offer almost unlimited aesthetic potential, and for home owners to enjoy true customisation that is as unique and different as they are.

 
“Concrete gives us as architects a great deal of creative license, we get to do things that you just can't with a standard timber framed building, whether its thin floor slabs, textured walls or an exposed aggregate floor. Aesthetically it gives us a great deal of flexibility.”

Andrew Simpson, Architect.
