The Cattell Home
Winner: 2015 HIA Custom Built Home $600,000 to 1 Million.
The Cattell Home is a Strongbuild ‘Contemporary Country Style’ project built on 2.5 acres on the outskirts of Berry NSW.
Our brief was to create a contemporary country home with separate inlaw accommodation that blended into the surrounding environment and took full advantage of the 180 degree views to the escarpment.
The home needed to present a warm, inviting modern, yet definite country feel both inside and out so the choice of appropriate building material was vital.
The outside of the buildings is a combination of natural upright hardwood timber slats and metal nail strip roofing – both colour co-ordinated to the tones found in the nearby escarpment.
The inside features large re-cycled posts and beams, re-cycled timber scissor ceiling trusses and polished concrete floors – offset by stylish modern inclusions.
The end result is a unique home that compliments its environment beautifully and is a pleasure to live in…exactly what our clients desired.
