5. Recycling materialsThe Petersham House also has a 4.5-metre-high ceiling that, faced with nearly full-length windows, creates a lofty sense of space. Architect Sam Crawford used exposed, oversized timber beams to scale the ceiling and create visual balance in the upper and lower planes of the room. Conveniently, and with consideration to environmental sustainability, the timber beams were reclaimed from demolished portions of the building, making them one of the many sustainable features of the house.

In comparison, these polished concrete floors have a great sense of warmth, due to the colour added. It has a rich brown tone that works beautifully with the wooden beams and other decorative details. Colour can be added to the pour in the initial stages, and can also be added later as water-based dyes or acids.

Plan aheadIf building a home from scratch, it’s a good idea to plan on the look you want for your floor well ahead of starting the build. The concrete pour happens early on and if you want to achieve certain finishes, they might need to be done at this stage. Underfloor heating is installed at this stage, too, so needs be planned for. BONUS TIP: If you are finishing the floor before completing the rest of the build, you will need to protect it. Architect Mick Moloney of Moloney Architects in Victoria recommends protecting the slab with a “layer of plywood to prevent damage by a million different sets of boots during construction.”

4. FloorsInside the home, concrete floors can be a stylish addition. In this Sydney terrace they have been combined with the homeowners’ love of craft and Scandinavian design to create a visually interesting space. The concrete floors have also been coloured to evoke a warmer feel. Concrete slab floors are durable, long-lasting and easy to clean. Here, they are warmed by the heat of the sun filtering through the adjacent courtyard.

1. ConcreteIn this Sam Crawford-designed house in Sydney’s inner west, the kitchen’s polished concrete floor is durable, long-lasting and easy to clean. If the cool flooring makes you feel a little nervous about chilly winter nights, it’s easy to add underfloor heating – pre-installed, naturally. This form of central heating produces warmth where it’s required most, underfoot, and then radiates throughout the area.GREAT FOR: Industrial-style spaces, slick city apartments and modern terraces.

1. A contemporary addition in SydneyThis home’s new wing was designed by Sam Crawford Architects. This open, light-filled space serves several purposes, including music room, art gallery, library and dining room.

The clients wanted each space in the new wing to perform multiple functions. This large room has places for playing and listening to music, dining and even a lounge area for reading. “They really wanted to blur the distinctions between room uses,” says Crawford.
