The black Spanish Slate shingles that cover this home, are softened by natural Iron Ash timber elements, as well as perforated aluminum screens and windows in a charcoal powder coat.

The shingles are not only on the exterior but also travel through to the light-filled, glass-bound internal corridor. Complementing the black shingles is the Bluestone Tile flooring that connects the front door with the social areas of the home.

At the end of the hallway, the interior opens up to the living room, dining area, and kitchen. The living room includes a wood-burning fireplace and Parana Engineered timber flooring. The dining area separates the living room from the kitchen.

In one of the bedrooms, heavy fabric curtains have been used to create a restful atmosphere, while a solid timber headboard spans the length of the back wall, and white painted walls and engineered timber floors finish off the room.
