State Selection: Edit
The inaugural Robin Dods Terracotta Roof Award, part of the Think Brick 2016 awards as been given to the Elias House by Harmer Architecture. This award rewards the best commercial, or residential, architecture project featuring the prominent use of terracotta roof tiles. It recognises design excellence in the use of roof tiles.
This home beautifully blends terracotta roof tiles and timber to present a unique façade that is both intriguing and welcoming. Using conventional materials in a non-conventional way, Harmer Architecture have created something interesting and unusually beautiful.
Terracotta roof tiles were selected for their natural beauty, texture and long lasting colour retention qualities. The sleek, flat profile of Monier Nullarbor was chosen to give a clean and crisp appearance, combined with the subtle texture of natural terracotta. The colour choice available in the Nullarbor range also appealed, as the colour available worked well with the preferred material choices.
In giving the award the Awards jury made the following comments about the winner – Elias House:
“This charismatic home beautifully blends terracotta tiles and timber to present a unique façade that is both intriguing and welcoming. The colour variations and vertical tiling are standout elements of the design.”
“What we see in the blending of the dark materials is that terracotta can be many colours other than orange and, of course, being terracotta, we know that those colours are never going to fade and they are going to last a lifetime.”
Congratulations to Harmer Architecture.
