Single Residential Exterior


Project Title: Casuarina House
Company Name: Vokes & Peters

Casuarina House is a new coastal family home in Northern New South Wales. In the direct sun, the red paintwork is bright and modern. In the shadows, the same colour appears deep and moody – appearing almost black. This was a perfect choice for a structure wrapped in timber batten screening, as it moderates the abundance of light for the private interior spaces.

Project Title: Split House
Company Name: Pac Studio

The Split House, highlighted key openings within the walls of the building with joinery frames painted in the rich Dulux Kakanui.

These openings were set over neutral walls in Dulux Narrow Neck for the new portion of the house, and Dulux Narrow Neck Double for the heritage fabric. Joinery sashes used the warm and buttery Dulux White Starlight Quarter. Across the rear of the house two sculptural shading screens diffused the top edge of the house as it met the sky. These screens were painstakingly manufactured with a gradient of splay cut boards, each painted with a Dulux Kakanui wedge along its cut face.
