INSIDE A FUTURISTIC HOME
IF you’ve taken a drive to check out the surf at Duranbah in recent times no doubt you’ve seen the eye-catching, spacecraft-style home at the top of Tweed Terrace.
The luxury pod home, built by GCB Constructions, has recently been completed and the futuristic dwelling has certainly attracted a lot of attention.
Concrete Nation had the pleasure of crafting the kitchen benchtops, custom bath, laundry benchtops and barbecue benchtop for the luxury build, which GCB Constructions director Trent Clark worked on for more than two years.
Clark told the Tweed Daily News that he consulted with Movie World prop makers to come up with the home's 3D design, which was inspired by a concept found in Mexico.
"The client originally got the design from a Mexican architect and then brought it over here,” he said.
Mr Clark said the 390sqm home included one sleeping pod with three bedrooms and another living pod with a lounge room, kitchen and dining room. He also said the futuristic home’s unusual shape would be good for airflow.
Concrete Nation founder Kate Lett said the team were given the scope to work out what was possible, and to figure out the shapes and proportions of the bespoke concrete pieces.
“The kitchen was the most difficult to work out, not only how to manufacture but also how to transport and install it,” she said. “The shape and size of the benchtop along with the rounded edges and the curve up from the floor made it challenging. We were so lucky to have Jason’s knowledge to make it work.”
“We love how the curved waterfall ends came out on the laundry benchtops as well,” said Lett.
