Planum - Blackstone

Ausbuild’s Denham 27 display home is a modern interpretation of a Hampton’s style single-storey dwelling. The choice of Bristile Blackstone tile as opposed to a metal roofing solution was to highlight the true form of Hampton’s style architecture.
The tile replicates the wooden shingle roof typically seen in North American Hampton’s architecture accentuating the horizontal lines of external materials, such as timber cladding and window frames, whereas a metal roofing would have provided a conflicting vertical line – not true to the style.
The strategy in execution of this design was to present the Hampton’s style in true form, typically designed for those with a large budget, in a way that is realistic and financially obtainable to the average buyer.
