A small Australian home has given traditional board and batten siding a contemporary update. The black fibre cement dwelling uses its mullions to create geometric, grid-like patterns for a sleek, modern take on the classic facade. Internally, natural plywood panels line the interior providing a warm contrast to the dark exterior shell. Polished concrete floors add to the minimalist aesthetic while the kitchen’s black tile backsplash mimics the external cladding. In the main living area, sliding glass doors expand the modest interior to a covered timber terrace overlooking the property’s lawn and garden.
