From the street, the sleek, linear nature of this Vulcan timber-clad duplex lends a rich, contemporary look, due to a minimal palette that delivers both warmth and texture.

Lending depth to the front facade, Michael Waterman of MHN Design Union, specified Abodo Vulcan cladding boards coated in the contrasting, yet cohesive shades of Protector - Nero and Patina. Framed in concrete, the Vulcan-clad seamless garage door uses dark Nero bandsawn textured timber, in a style that brings about the intersecting lines of a Mondrian painting.

The dual colour scheme of Vulcan timbers carries through to the rear of the home, where the pale Protector - Patina soffits add lightness and contrast against the dark Protector - Nero finished cladding. A barbecue surround finished in pale Patina integrates with the walls of the patio area, wrapping this space in warm timber tones.

Through clever spatial planning and a clean, contemporary exterior aesthetic, this pair of homes delivers on all the homeowners’ wishes and is a welcome addition to this harbourside neighborhood.
