The Jacaranda mixed materials duplex – the completed project

The Jacaranda project is a great example of how different materials and textures can give a home a modern and personalised look, creating layers and focal points that differentiate a home from those around it. Linea™ Weatherboard is used here to bring striking design elements to this home, contrasting with the exposed brickwork and other mixed material elements.
