Virginia Kerridge enjoys the natural beauty of recycled timber. The floorboards seen here at the Lilyfield Warehouse add warmth and texture to the loft space.
Like recycled timber, recycled bricks have the patina of age. Bricks are often reused from site, as seen here at the Lilyfield Warehouse.
The textural quality of rammed earth appeals to Virginia Kerridge. It also promotes the use of local materials, as seen here at the House in Country New South Wales. Wall sculpture: Shona Wilson.
Concrete is versatile and its durability makes it a good material for flooring, as seen here at the White Rock House.
Galvanized iron roof sheeting
Galvanized iron is a durable material, has a natural patina that develops over time and is appropriate in rural settings, as seen here at the House in Country New South Wales.
The rich colour of the corten steel complements the use of natural materials. At the Lilyfield Warehouse, pictured here, it has been used to create a pool.
