The old saying goes that you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, but they also say that first impressions last, and realistically we're all guilty of forming immediate opinions on our initial encounter with something. This is especially true of houses, where the facade can shape our entire perception of a space, creating an impression that continues even as we step inside and explore the interior. For this reason it's important that the facade of your house looks beautiful, interesting, and makes a statement that reflects your personal style, and the vision of the architects.
Today we're going to take a look at facades that use the two most ubiquitous building materials in modern construction; timber and concrete. Concrete is a cheap and versatile material that promises a sturdy structure and even temperatures, while timber allows for limitless possibilities in terms of form, as well as infusing your home with a sense of nature. Combine the two and you get a fascinating contrast of organic and man-made elements, and the kind of flexibility necessary for the most ambitious architects around to realise their innovative concepts.
We'll see homes that cover every style and movement in architecture, from avant-garde minimalist homes that push the boundaries to traditional mansions rich with history that tell stories of romance and intrigue. So join us and you'll find inspiration to build a home that is reliable and impressive whatever your personal taste.
So many breathtaking designs, with only one combination of materials! To take a look at a home that features concrete and timber elements up close join us for a tour through this magical home!
