Ever Art Wood timber look aluminium cladding from Covet International in a textured finish has been cleverly used along with concrete to create a striking facade on a residential apartment complex in St Kilda, Victoria.

Located in a neighbourhood with abundant architectural beauty and diversity, this new luxury multi-residential building boasts a modern timber-look and concrete facade.

The linear timber look exterior cladding panels from the Ever Art Wood range add texture and materiality to the building facade. The juxtaposition of the softer timber look cladding against the stark concrete lends an edgy look while hinting at the luxurious well-appointed apartments within.

The careful selection of the high end materials palette for inside and outside applications led to Ever Art Wood timber look aluminium cladding being specified over real timber. Key characteristics of aluminium cladding such as resistance to fading, warping or splitting, realistic timber looks, and a durable and enduring aesthetic that would last the life of the property, contributed to the selection of the Ever Art Wood range.
