Unique curved ceiling
The most noticeable facet of the interior is the spectacular curved ceiling which spans the entire upper floor. The ceiling uses click-on timber battens bent to angle down toward the edges of the building, creating a singular form canopy. A large skylight above a circular pendant light creates a feature in the centre of the ceiling while also providing light to the solid white central staircase.
Picturesque views are seen through large full-length windows, taking advantage of the location of the property. The arch of the curved ceiling draws the eye down toward the windows, some of which open to a balcony providing access to the sea breeze.
“The number one consideration was the concealed fixings of the blackbutt with the Click-on Batten system. The ability for the 60x19mm blackbutt to follow the radius of the ceiling and for us to seamlessly hide air-conditioning registers within the ceiling space.”
Create your own inspiration
A natural aesthetic
The battens which make up the incredible feature ceiling are made from Australian Blackbutt timber in Sculptform’s Click-on Batten System.
60x19mm battens placed at 15mm spacing, then curved to fit the form of the ceiling create a unique texture and shape.
The colouring of the Blackbutt timber provides a level of variation which gives the battens a natural aesthetic, in contrast to the clean white surfaces of the internal staircase.

“The whole house came together with the use of the Click-on Batten system, blackbutt, Hillview granite stone, rammed earth walls and architecture of the house. From a distance, the timber gives the house a wow factor and shows all the precise angles and elevations.”
