The Riverside Concrete Sail House by LUXUS Homes & Tim Wright Architect explores the many possibilities of concrete as a material, using it to inspiring and sometimes surprising effect in this home designed for entertaining. With the intention to provoke different emotions in each space of the home, the Riverside Concrete Sail House takes the inhabitant on a journey, from an experience of austerity through to a composed serenity. Minimal in aesthetic, the entry leads into open plan living, dining and kitchen and is rich in materials and textures with honed Bedonia stone floors, Havana veneer cabinetry and enormous cast in-situ Oregon board-formed concrete walls. The hero of the design is naturally the concrete sail, firmly falling from the roof concrete on the edge of the crisp blue lap pool. Spread spaciously over the 3 storeys, the Riverside Concrete Sail House is the epitome of subtle sophistication, with the grandeur of the home being magnified by the rawness of materials rather than bombarded with materialism itself.
