This contemporary custom home, situated in Noosa Heads in Queensland, was designed with a focus on clean architectural lines, and a cubist-inspired shape that will be appreciated for many years to come. The owners of the home wanted many timber features in their design. However, given the home's proximity to the ocean, DECO Australia's building materials were selected to help protect against sea salt spray and UV rays.
DECO Australia's DecoBatten series is used in the project to achieve a natural timber look with a highly durable finish. The solid aluminum external battens were chosen because of their marine-grade powder coating that is low maintenance and does not require painting, staining, or oiling. The battens are finished in the color DecoWood® Smoked Ash, creating a modern aesthetic with an elegant woodgrain.
One of the many luxurious features of this home is the visually impressive vertical DecoBatten BBQ station, located on the rooftop. Multiple sizes of battens, including DECO's new 25x50mm designer series, were utilized around the BBQ station to create a unique effect. The clients opted for DecoBatten in this space because it is a non-combustible and fire-safe product.
Around the swimming pool area, DECO Australia's DecoDeck material is installed in the same color as the battens to create continuity. The timber-look deck is made of aluminum and mimics the form, feel, and overall appearance of natural timber. The deck includes a slip-resistant finish that resists chlorine effects and helps ensure safer activity around the swimming pool.
