The Building Design Association (BDA) Awards is a celebration of innovative design, highlighting building designers at the forefront of change in the industry.
This year’s awards entrants showcased “masterful design and creativity that is awe-inspiring” as noted by BDA president, Ray Brown.
Taking out the overall prize along with The Best use of James Hardie Products was The Grange by James Collins of Collins w Collins.
Situated amongst bushland in Thrumster, NSW, the home is described as a “chameleon,” blending in with its natural surroundings. The owner’s love of the industrial aesthetic is apparent in the inclusion of raw materials such as polished concrete floors graffiti features.
Scyon™Matrix™ was used to create a variety of modern, expressed-joint looks to the façade—from horizontal and vertical stripes to geometric patterns.
Matrix is also juxtaposed with metal and painted brickwork to create a range of non-symmetrical formations that furthered the industrial appeal of the project.
The home seamlessly integrates indoors and outdoors through a rustic aesthetic and a colour palette reminiscent of the Australian bush. It epitomises the essence of the awards, highlighting how clever design and creativity can inspire a new take on the classic Australian Home.
