This award-winning modern dual townhouse development in Seaholme, Victoria, has been beautifully finished using Covet's Ever Art Wood® prefabricated Doubuchi screening & Kabebari batten two part profiles.

This stunning residential project, designed by McGann Architects and built by Mancini Made, was awarded the Master Builders Excellence in Housing Awards Winner 2018 (Best Multi up to 3).

With floor to ceiling windows, ceiling cavities and glass balustrades, these dual townhouses were built to capture natural light. Covet's timber look Doubuchi prefabricated screens not only serve as a feature that injects warmth into the facade, but also provides privacy for residents without stealing any of the carefully captured sunlight.

Made to measure, the Doubuchi screening was prefabricated in Japan and delivered to site ready to install. Negating on-site labour, and built using hollow section battens, the screens proved an economical choice.

The photorealistic, timber look screening in textured Kuri Masame battens were also used in the development. Lightweight Ever Art Wood® Kabebari 30x50 battens in the same colour were also utilised as batten cladding on garage doors.
