Battery Point

Winner Excellence in Use of Timber

Designer: Designers By Nature
Builder: MM Hearn Constructions
Photographer: Rowena Naylor Photography and Linda Jemmett
Location: Port Fairy, VIC

Conforming to traditional forms externally, resulting from Heritage overlays, the use of bold ceiling forms, open planning and the extensive use of timber internally has allowed this design to shake loose from the confines of a traditional past. Combining the rich warm hues of Spotted Gum to the feature staircase creates the perfect pathway towards exposed and crafted KD Hardwood trusses, supporting exposed and lofty Birch Plywood ceilings. The combination of this intertwining timber palette has helped to produce a warm and welcoming yet modern open planned living environment.
