The Corian® Design Awards for outstanding design, recognises local designers for the creative use of Corian in their field of expertise. Tweed Terrace, designed by Raunik Design Group was one of the winners of last years awards.
Tweed Terrace House challenges typical Gold Coast architecture. Comprised of two pods, the unique home was conceived by Mexican architect Javier Senosiain and was made a reality by Raunik Design Group. The process has taken over 3 years but has resulted in a home that is now a local landmark.
Corian has allowed a seamless, curved and organic finish. The colour selections have been made mindfully to suit the rooms and their purpose. The bathrooms see Antarctica finished to a gloss level for the curved vanity tops with integrated basins yet a smooth, matte finish for the bed surround and shelves, evoking a sense of calm in Glacier White.
Technically, the designs have called for an expert fabricator with complex curves and thermoforming throughout. Prototypes were made to really test the material performance as well as ergonomics and depths of basins. The resulting installation is of impeccable quality with the client exceptionally pleased with the finished home.
“We wanted a product that looks like it flows with the curved walls and emerge from the wall. We wanted it to have its own form and dissipate in its own way.” – Scott Bowden, Project Leader, Raunik Design Group.
The winners and highly commended shortlisted projects are all featured in the CASF website. Finalists will receive editorial and global exposure via the DuPont Network.
