Modern Look

Modern design is the opposite to ornate classic design. Building with lightweight materials like fibre cement cladding allows you to achieve the essential ingredients for modern homes such as Bold Forms, Clean, Sleek Lines and Façade Articulation among others. You’ll find the essential ingredients you need in our Modern Look Book. When renovating, homeowners discover that old and new can work together and bring your vision to life. In suburbs close to cities and town centres homeowners, and often councils, want to retain the suburb character and street appeal of heritage homes. On the flipside homeowners want to live in a modern, open plan indoor outdoor lifestyle. As a result contemporary additions to heritage homes are common. Download the James Hardie Renovation Guide to discover more tips for renovating with lightweight materials.
