Appropriately named for its predominant use of concrete externally and internally, Concrete House is a statement of endurance, resoluteness, and sustainability, design by Rob Henry Architects.

Driving the aesthetics was a contemporary material palette. Concrete forms both anchor and frame elements, whilst also defying convention through floating projections. Charcoal zinc cladding, varied in profile, wraps the structure to induce a recessive quality.

The house’s U-shaped layout, with central courtyard, allows each space optimal solar orientation. Room are modest in proportion yet generous through openness to their surrounds.

The interior palette references the exterior with concrete flooring, stairs, and blade walls that extend through the house, while the introduction of oak detailing adds warmth and texture to spaces. Featuring two of our Ora Pendant 600DIA in Slate.

The house is grounded in its attention to detail and longevity of program. This ensures that the minimalist aesthetic of the house’s form and materials are not ostentatious, but rather a restrained expression of contemporary family living.
