Exposed steel work
Exposed steel, with its light and crisp appearance, provides contrast to the more textured materials such as timber, seen here at the Kirribilli House. onesteel.com
Popov Bass Architects uses off-form concrete, which improves with age, for its structural and sculptural qualities.
This material has warmth and character and can be used in various applications. Here, timber flooring is seen at Kirribilli House. aahardwoods.com.au
Glass blades are used as privacy screens, allowing for directed views and privacy for the occupants.
Black timber stain
As well as providing protection to external timber cladding, black timber stain also adds depth of colour to the walls, as seen in the exterior of the Whale Beach House. sikkens.com
Terracotta is used for its warm yet crisp appearance. It is also durable and requires little maintenance. creaton.de/en
