The subtle Nullarbor Earth tone perfectly suits the environment and complements the truly unique design of the building.
More than 28,000 Nullarbor Earth tiles were specified over 2,100 m2 of roof area for the new building which replaces a Clubhouse dating back to 1941. The subtle Nullarbor Earth tone perfectly suits the environment and complements the truly unique design of the building.
“The terracotta roof line of the original building was dear to the Members and so it was vital a quality terracotta tile was used,” explained Drew Spiden. “As a modern reference to the tiled gables of the original Clubhouse, the new building features an unbroken roof line of undulating asymmetrical gables.”
The roof line is a strong graphic expression which defines the character of the new building. The structure of the roof is multi pitched with varying angles. The chosen tile is an ultra-premium terracotta flat profile offering a quality finish. The colour never fades as it is locked into the surface of the natural clay meaning the new roof will maintain its brilliant colour for years to come.
The structure of the roof is complemented by the straightness of the ridges and the accuracy of the diagonal cuts in the eaves. Metal box gutters and down pipes are cleverly concealed from view so as to not detract from the aesthetic appeal of the roof.
Monier terracotta roof tiles adds beauty and character to a building and were the ideal choice for the Huntingdale Clubhouse rebuild,” said Drew Spiden. “The roof enhances the overall look and feel of the building while fitting seamlessly into its natural surroundings.”
