Entrepreneur Haus located in the heart of Southbank in Qld, brings form together with function using recycled shipping containers. Their goal for the fit out was to deliver a comfortable co-working space, with a unique look and the ergonomics of a working environment that inspires its tenants to create something truly amazing.
Sydney-based architecture practice Koichi Takada is known for their use of timber to create calm and elegant interiors. But when it came to designing the pool common area of a luxury apartment in Melbourne’s Docklands, they had to find a product that would be materially appropriate for the context.
Covet recently worked with both builder and architect to create a suspended ceiling using the 30x85 two piece Kabebari profile. We supplied a custom black T section that was affixed to ceiling rods. From there the battens were fastened to the T sections with an acoustic matt infill. The end result delivered by the builder was testament to their tradesmens' skills.
Covet was fortunate to work with Covet was fortunate to work with ARCD on an innovative office fit out in Richmond. Takasho Ever Artwood was selected for a board room cladding feature. Designers have been drawn to the realistic and unique aesthetic of this Japanese timber palette, coupled with its excellent FR attributes.
Its amazing where a web enquiry can lead. Covet Australia, Takasho Japan and S22 of New Caledonia recently collaborated on the Mairie de Païta (Council building) in New Caledonia. A selection of Art Wood colours was chosen for this new building. it was important that a durable timber alternative capable of withstanding the harsh tropical environment was specified. S22 is now subsequently working with Covet to introduce the Ever Art Wood range within the Pacific region.
A detailed and complex project has recently been delivered incorporating several Covet materials. The main feature being the Mitzosuki bolt fix battens wrapping the corner of the building with LED screen display. All cut to exacting dimension in Japan. We were also fortunate to provide the 1x2mtr Art Board panels on the ground floor cladding, custom blue battens on the awning and lobby concrete tiles. The unique vision of the designers at four18 was realised by the install talents of City to Coast Stainless (battens), and Alclad Architectural (cladding)
Covet Artwood from Japan was recently installed in a new apartment development in Melbourne called Spectrum Apartments - Box Hill. Designed by KUD and developed by Shangyi Property, this building makes a bold, contemporary statement. The designer selected the Covet aluminium cladding system called Ever Artwood from Takasho Japan for the entry lobby. The battens employed were the 2-section ‘Kabebari’ system designed for ease of installation and concealed fixings. The project was pre-cut from shop drawings in Japan and involved over 600 battens. The designers and client were drawn to the fire rating (AS/NZ 3837 - group 1), realistic timber aesthetic, precision and low maintenance aspect of the material.
