Andrews Luxury Home - WA, Australia

Three metre solid timber blades are the defining feature in this luxury home.

Timber cladding, solid timber blades, white render, black Milano render and concrete make up the foundational materials in this stunning Cottesloe residence by John Lewis Architects and Courtico Interiors.

Located on an awkward 746m2 site, this luxury home was designed to orientate towards a park. Then faced with the challenge of direct western sun, the architect used our solid Vulcan timber blades as large sculptural cantilevers to control the sun.

These second floor Vulcan timber blades are 175mm x 40mm in 3m lengths, clear span and were slotted from behind and chemically anchored onto a steel plate. This means there is no visible fixing from either the front or the sides.

Similar techniques were applied to the cabana ceiling (100mm x 40mm in 4.8 m lengths), utilising steel rods that were chemically anchored into the concrete. Battens were attached to the rods, to help keep the battens straight and create a hidden fixing system.

All Vulcan timber was coated with two coats of Straw Protector Oil, and one coat of Teak Protector Oil as the finishing touch.

The timber blades on this facade were made possible by the proven stability of the Vulcan timber from Abodo.

Bringing about continuity; the rich warmth of these finishes forms a natural connection throughout, bringing together the grounds, pool and luxury design of the home.
