Art house - Armidale home

Wow! Is this a home or a piece of art? Quite simply, it’s designed to be both… a piece of artwork that you can live in.

Built in Butler Street, Armidale, this home carries the artistic theming seamlessly from the outside through to the inside. The care and attention to artistic detailing also extends to the functioning of the home, which is designed with sustainable principles in mind, including minimising VOCs by careful selection of finishing materials.

The home focuses on a core palette of three colours – Resene White, Resene Black and the striking spicy red Resene Jalapeno. The exterior express wall and weatherboard substrates are finished in paint finishes of Environmental Choice approved Resene Lumbersider low sheen waterborne, Resene Enamacryl gloss waterborne enamel and Resene Hi-Glo gloss waterborne paint.

Inside, the plasterboard walls are finished in Resene Lumbersider complemented by Resene Ceiling Paint.

The homeowner can safely leave conventional artwork in storage as this home’s blend of bold circles, lines, texture and touches of contrasting colour is an artwork unto itself.
