Nailstrip and Flatlock Metal Cladding combine in Ivanhoe!

Posted inOur News

This project involved the significant renovation of an existing 1940s brick-joined home in a heritage subdivision.

The new section of the home was set off the existing rooms with a glazed connection and bridge link. The combination of raw in-situ concrete, black zinc, white joinery and warm timber provided a sophisticated modern and homely palette.

Nominated for the Master Builders Victoria 2020 Winning Homes for the Best Renovation / Addition between $750K – $1M, this residential project is a true masterpiece.

Nailstrip finished with COLORBOND® steel Matt Monument® and Flatlock finished with COLORBOND® steel Night Sky® creates an inspired aesthetic for this residence in Ivanhoe, Melbourne.

For this project, the Metalplum team worked closely with Splinter Society Architecture, Ferndale Victoria, and Architectural Cladding Suppliers to complete a remarkable installation to bring this residence back to its former glory with a modern twist.

According to Mick Golowka from Metalplum, the Nailstrip profiles with concealed capping truly delivered a beautiful finish – connecting the existing structure to the new extension for this residence. We have worked closely with the builder Ferndale Victoria in the past which made this project a winning collaboration.

An exceptional installation by Metalplum – fabricated by the ACS team

This was an exceptional achievement by Metalplum, Splinter Society Architecture, and Ferndale Victoria and a residential project the ACS team was proud to supply and fabricate.

When we asked Mick, what type of metal cladding was his favourite and the industry trends he and the team were noticing in 2021 – Mick replied: “Snaplock metal cladding allows some flexibility with more tolerance with variance and clips. We also love Standing Seam, the finish delivers a traditional look and is so worth it.”

In regard to the industry trends, Mick adds “COLORBOND® steel – Matt is in high demand and delivers a modern architectural finish our clients love. Monument® is the colour of choice and is in such high demand.”

Nailstrip and Flatlock when combined will always impress. Both metal cladding profiles can be manufactured using Steel, Galvanised Steel, Aluminium, Brass, Copper, Stainless Steel, Zinc, and Weathering Steel.
