“We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us.” Winston Churchill

Saw this exterior cladding on a beautiful house in St Kilda West, Melbourne, designed by Kennedy Nolan.  I saw this and thought, wow – what would it look like on our house when we replace the existing insulclad (put on 15 years ago by the previous owner when the house was moved).  A quick email to Kennedy Nolan and I found out its Anthra-zinc which is like a black zinc.   Re-cladding is years away, but I’ve already realised that perhaps I should go with something more honest and appropriate for an ex-state house in Pt Chev, ie weatherboard :-)
