Temperance Court

Winner Excellence in Use of Lightweight Materials

Designer: PROJECT Now Builder: Q Constructions
Photographer: Hstudios Location: Nerrina, VIC

Temperance Court proves well considered design intent in the choice and application of lightweight materials. An upper sculpted form is clad in James Hardie’s Stria and hovers above the timber-clad ground floor. The contrast between the materials works well, and the timber cladding provides a lightness, visual tactility and warmth to the entry whilst concealing the garage – a great relief from the often-dominating street presences of garages. Well done, Temperance Court.
