Project Details

The Robe project, situated along the South Australian coastline, seamlessly blends modern living with natural beauty. Architect Tim Hodges aimed to maximise the property’s elevation and breathtaking views, creating a coastal retreat that seamlessly connects indoor and outdoor spaces.

Innova™’s Nuline™ Plus weatherboards were chosen for their aesthetic appeal and resilience to coastal elements. The project showcases meticulous attention to detail through the use of Innova™’s Intergroove™ ceilings, ensuring a smooth transition between indoor and outdoor areas. The combination of materials, Nuline™ Plus weatherboards and Stratum™ weatherboards, adds texture to the facade, making the Robe project a testament to innovative design and practical material choices. Architect Tim Hodges’ commitment to the client’s vision led to a residence that perfectly integrates with its surroundings, emphasising the importance of coastal aesthetics. The use of Innova™’s weatherboards and high raked ceilings enhances the ocean views and creates a seamless connection between indoor and outdoor spaces. Beyond aesthetics, the choice of fibre cement over timber highlights its longevity and low maintenance,crucial in a coastal environment. The Robe project exemplifies the transformative capabilities of Innova™ fibre cement, turning architectural dreams into living realities that endure.

BGC Fibre Cement were great to deal with on this project, they delivered the product to us on time which enabled us to meet our tight “I specified fibre cement weatherboards instead of timber because of the longevity and low maintenance of this material, which is crucial in a coastal setting.”
