Exciting projects

Updated: Mar 29, 2019

A project that explores new materials and building techniques.

Below are some preview photos of one new house design in Rostrevor.

This environmentally sustainable design has used a new profile of corrugated metal cladding as it’s external walling material. The product is called Mid Orb. Its profile is in between Mini-orb and Custom –orb in size of flute. Fixings are smaller and are Colorbond to match the sheet colour. The advantage of this is that the fixings are visually less prominent. For visual relief, and to accentuate the 45 degree axis of the living spaces, areas of ExoTec cladding panels have been used.

As part of the minimalist interior design new skirting and architrave profiles have been adopted to create an almost seamless junction between walls, skirtings and architraves.

A new light fitting is also being purposely designed for this project to uplight the ceilings in the living areas and bedrooms. Because downlights require a shroud around each fitting in the ceiling space to minimise the risk of fire, this creates an unwanted uninsulated area through which heat and cold can escape. Using uplighters the ceiling acts as an even light source and allows the insulation to remain uncompromised. Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be satisfactory fittings available on the market presently, so we have chosen to design our own to suit the purpose.
