The Wells House has always been one of our favourite builds to visit - which is why we love to bring you all new updates when we get them! This week has been all about the interiors, the new water tanks and the architectural awnings.
The Habitech-designed sun shading awning system wraps itself around three sides of the house, sheltering the windows from the hot northern sun during the summer, while allowing the sun into the home during the winter months. The continuous expressive architectural detail of the Colorbond awnings have been powder-coated in Monument steel colour, contrasting against the pure white asymmetric forms of the main building. This week we also took delivery of five new water-tanks, helping our clients save water while maintaining their forthcoming landscaped gardens.
As seen in the top left picture, interior plastering is now well underway, preparing the Wells House for its feature fireplace sitting in the heart of the family living space. When done, this ground floor region will form the central hub of the house, opening out onto a northern facing deck and gardens.
