Commendation Excellence in Use of Recycled Materials

Designer: Peter Jackson Design Pty Ltd
Builder: Mike Gibbins
Photographer: Brett Holmberg
Location: Inverloch, VIC

The client's uncle sailed from Princes Pier to Pozieres, France in 1916, never to return. The recycled timber posts and beams sourced from Princes Pier now support the numerous gables around the house, a synergy which is extremely important to the client. This raw recycled Ironbark exudes strength, and connects the house to the surrounding manna gums. Elements from the original homestead have also been utilized; Jarrah boards surround the upper floor windows and the historical white gate re-hung.
