Martha's Peak

Commendation Excellence in Use of Concrete

Designer: Arki Design Studio
Builder: Owner/Builder
Photographer: Chris Groenhout
Location: Mount Martha, VIC

Solid concrete walls with expressed details combine with the striking timber fa├žade detailing to provide a glimpse of what lays beyond. The combination of timber and concrete continues throughout. The floating, single-piece staircase is a standout feature. External concrete detailing in garden and transition areas provides both function and aesthetically pleasing form. The interior design is accentuated by polished concrete floor throughout. The texture, contrast and detailing of the concrete throughout combines into a powerful modern design.
