Northern NSW residence
Year completed: 2013
Builder: Heanes Built
Architect: Beach Architects
Size: 800 m2
This residence is anchored tenaciously into shale rock to provide breathtaking views from the ridgeline.
The residence’s generous and evocative roof design has a subtle horizon curve that successfully integrates it into the topography.
The cladding was designed to withstand the coastal climate while working in harmony with the environment, saving on the ongoing use of resources and applied finishes where possible.
Proven profiles, precious metals
The longitudinal flat lock panel cladding with recess gives form and function by enabling the building to shed water to help it reach its maximum lifespan.
Using durable natural copper for the second story keeps the façade true to its earthy roots and is environmentally responsible, requiring virtually no maintenance or cleaning.
The double standing seam system used for the roof made it possible to overcome the complexities in creating such a subtle curve.
This residence may well last three times longer than the average home. It may well become more sustainable with every passing year thanks to the architectural design and high quality materials used.
The visually stunning copper façade and roof will change over time bringing renewed life to the residence as it ages.
ZC Technical has recently completed two very large and very high profile residences in Byron Bay for us. One was a 800m2 zinc roof in the hinterlands off Byron in May/June 2011 and the other a 650m2 copper roofing and cladding project in Byron Bay.
ZC Technical operated in both situations in a professional manner and the tradesmanship was exceptional. They meet all timeframe requirements allowing the project to remain on schedule. They also have an excellent knowledge in materials and profiles to accommodate any situation in the building industry.
Heanes Built has a reputation in the industry for various high levels of workmanship and this is due to the quality tradesmen we employ such as ZC Technical.
We would not hesitate to use ZC Technical for any of our future projects.
