Gyprock plasterboard was extensively used to create internal living spaces at the Rumney Rest, an award-winning home situated 320 metres above sea level in Mount Rumney, a suburb of Hobart.
Positioned on a steep hill amidst a dense landscape of trees, the spectacular Rumney Rest is designed with sustainability at its core, meeting the brief of the client who sought a minimalistic, contemporary two-bedroom pavilion-style home.
The designer worked to create internal living spaces that were well connected to the exterior. The open plan interior design captures the amazing scenery from all rooms, exceeding the client's expectations with a magnificent end result.
The exterior landscape and environment blends seamlessly with the internal living areas with stand-out features such as curved ceilings and a remarkable curved, red feature wall. Building designer Mike Cleaver of Clever Design selected conventional 10mm Gyprock Plasterboard CD featuring Controlled Density technology, with a recessed edge for the curved ceiling.
To achieve the red curved wall, Gyprock Flexible plasterboard was installed in two layers, allowing the board to move into a tight radius.
Lightweight constructed walls were fixed with Gyprock Superchek 10mm premium plasterboard due to its dense core and heavy duty facing. The green credentials of the recycled formula of the board were also a deciding factor. Gyprock's Superchek allowed for a smooth, even and environmentally conscious surface across all walls.
The residential home has won multiple awards, including the prestigious Australian Home of the Year Award at the 2013 HIA-CSR Awards. The judges were highly impressed with the entry, describing it as ‘an outstanding home with perfect workmanship and considered design’.
