The Turner Studio-designed Sanctuary estate in Wentworth Point, NSW is one of the latest developments by Sekisui House. Planned as a premier multi-residential development, the estate draws on Japanese design principles and showcases luxurious and sophisticated finishes throughout the space.

Ever Art Wood timber look battens from Covet International line the interior walls of the lobbies at Sanctuary by Sekisui House, greeting both residents and visitors with a luxurious and warm vibe.

Located just 16km from Sydney’s CBD, the Sanctuary development draws inspiration from the site’s waterside location. Curves have been incorporated throughout the interior, with varying lengths of concealed fix Kabebari battens in Kuri Masame lining the lobby walls and creating a flowing visual display.

Covet Ever Art Wood timber look battens are also used in external communal spaces within the estate. While Kabebari plank battens feature on the soffits of exterior balconies, slimline Kabebari battens in rich Burakku Erumu feature in decorative cladding on exterior BBQ areas.

The exterior grade battens are built to withstand the elements without any need for ongoing oiling or maintenance, making them a smart choice in this application.
