Home Living : April 20th 2010
HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, April 20, 2010 7 HOMELIVING Cheap and clever » ADVERTISING FEATURE The creation of something extraordinary through the use of ordinary building materials turned heads at the Decoration + Design Sydney Expo by architecture firm Architect Prineas at the Sydney Exhibition Centre recently. One of only six architects invited to present a one-room display on the theme Eco Luxury, Eva-Marie Prineas created a unique bathroom that combined luxury and eco-friendly features through the innovative use of Boral concrete blocks and other standard building materials. Everything in the room was either bought online or second-hand, recycled or left-over building material. One wall of the display featured Boral masonry blocks installed on their sides to show the internal indentations and give it an arty honeycomb look. These ''pockets" also had a practical application as mini-shelves and cubbyholes for accessories and decorations. Another wall featured an eye-catching array of mirrors. The bathroom was lit by a chandelier. ''We normally use Boral masonry blocks for construction purposes rather than for aesthetics,'' Ms Prineas said. ''We decided to turn this tradition on its head and create a new look and feel by using a popular, well-known product in an innovative and attractive way. ''We also painted the blocks white to draw attention to the rough texture of the material and to add depth and a sense of elegance to the room."
