    These panels are fabricated by Shepparton Pre-cast and use the Thermomass insulation system. The Timber texture in the concrete is recycled oregon boards. The curved concrete panel was formed and poured insitu but all the others were fabricated off site.

This Melbourne home designed by BG Architecture is a fantastic showcase of the creative potential of concrete. It is mainly constructed from pre-cast panels, fabricated using an integrated insulation system called Thermomass, which comprises two concrete panels sandwiched around a layer of extruded polystyrene. These panels can be used for interior and exterior walls and, once installed, do not require any further finishing. The curved panel on this home was formed and poured on-site.Browse more concrete homes and facades

Concrete When you’re covering a large area that gets a high level of vehicular traffic, such as a driveway, concrete is often the best paving solution. This Melbourne home demonstrates the versatility of concrete; the house is clad in textured concrete, and the same material with different colours and finishes is used for the irregularly shaped driveway and mix of different sized paving units in the pathway.PROS: There is a huge range of colours, textures and finishes available with concrete, and virtually any shape is possible. The material is long lasting and durable, looks great combined with other materials such as timber, terracotta, stone and brick, and can be cut to resemble large pavers. CONS: Professional skill is needed for a quality job, and it needs to be cleaned regularly in humid or wet locations.

2. ConcreteConcrete is a very versatile material that can be used to create pavers for the driveway, and can achieve a variety of looks to suit the style of a house. Here, the smooth concrete driveway complements and contrasts with textured concrete panels that encase the house.Tour this house

The block’s shape largely drove this home’s design. The block is bound by five properties and has narrow shoulders at both the front and rear. Despite being surrounded by so many other homes, the homeowners were keen to create a private sanctuary and so their architects designed a series of internal zones choreographed to suit the natural lay of the land.
