Sitting on the shores of Raby Bay, south of Brisbane, this stunning home allows direct water access and acknowledges the growing independence of the two teenage children. An existing boatshed was incorporated into the new build which is predominately timber framed and clad with rendered concrete masonry.

The house embraces a wide palette of premium materials including timber and Balinese stone. Austral Masonrys Artique Elegance Designer Masonry laid in a stack bond features in a number of internal and external locations. The stack bonding adds a more contemporary feel to the project and its modularity is in keeping with the design of the project. These premium-quality masonry units are characterised by their honed edges and fine surface finish. The most striking application of Artique Designer Masonry is on the outside of the north-facing wall flanking a lap pool, the Pewter coloured blockwork finishing just above the waterline.

The smooth surface of Artique Classic masonry gives a soft glow to any project. Artique is also available in split face (Dynamic) or exposed aggregate (Elegance) finishes.
