When I first read the residence was built in 24 weeks on a budget of 500,000 Australian dollars I said: “Wow! That must be an incredible project!”  Curl Curl Residence was designed by Australian studio CplusC Architects and is located in a suburb of northern Sydney. In a nutshell, the architects wanted to exploit the structural and aesthetic benefits of the timbers. The result proved to be quite stunning:  ” The longitudinal division of the home is expressed externally with the metal clad butterfly roof which collects rainwater that is stored in an extensive sub floor bladder tank system. Externally, stud frame walls are clad with Western Red Cedar shiplap boards, stained black and orientated vertically. This creates a bold, modest aesthetic which contrasts with the clear oiled Western Red Cedar doors and windows, used specifically in this application due to its light weight and durability.”, say the architects from CplusC.
