STEEL CITY

"We wanted to create low maintenance homes with the use of untreated raw materials, such as steel, concrete blocks and plywood sheeting. The narrative was simple, let the materials speak for themselves."

AT ONE WITH NATURE

“Undoubtably the favourite thing about our home is the view it affords of the pond. A magical place, that never fails to deliver whatever the season, whatever the weather.

Inside our interiors style is post-industrial but with a definite love of the mid-century. We'd describe the exterior as Voodoo Architecture - the black simply disappears into the trees.”
