Commendation Excellence in Use of Timber

Designer: Dig Design
Builder: L O'Grady Constructions
Photographer: Rachel Lewis Photography
Location: Yarraville, VIC

This elegant extension has utilised timber as a constant throughout, creating internal continuity. The vertical Spotted Gum external cladding extended to soffit linings, crafted timber joinery for window seats, open kitchen shelving, bathroom cabinetry and shelving units of natural oak laminate are all pulled together by the constant of the matte finished Blackbutt timber flooring. Timber use extends to the Japanese-influenced pergola and even to the side and front fences. The overall effect of this play with timber is a warm calm and inviting interior juxtaposed with a robust and honest exterior.
