Combinations of stone, timber and concrete define the work of this practice.

Brickwork and recycled brick

Face brick gives a clear reading of scale and texture and provides thermal mass.

Isernia and Aretusa sandblasted stone

Stone gives a tactile finish to beach or harbour-side projects such as the Point Piper Boathouse (image 1).

Off-form concrete

Concrete’s placticity affords possibilities of form, while the expression of its formwork in the surface lends textural richness to a space. Seen here at the Carport Treehouse (image 2).

Recycled timber

Recyled timber is used for its depth of colour, low moisture content and sustainability.

Shadowclad Ecoply

A cost-effective wall cladding system. When finished in a dark stain, as seen at the Carport Treehouse (image 4), it becomes a “contemporary interpretation of vernacular coastal houses.”
