Herne Bay House



This modern home feels solidly grounded to the earth, thanks to basement walls formed from brown-tinted, off-shutter concrete. The shutters on this level are made from rough-sawn timber planks of varying thicknesses to create texture and variety. 

Block 1

On the ground floor, we used steel shutters to contrast with the smooth concrete walls. The first-floor features white stained cedar weatherboards, floating over the concrete lower floors. A four-meter cantilever emphasises the lightness of the top floor.
