Donnybrook, Victoria

The Challenges

When custom home builder Homespace Builds was approached to design and build a two-story family home on a large corner block at Donnybrook in Melbourne’s north, the homeowners were looking for a façade to make a statement. 

Located on a corner block on a busy road, the Donnybrook home was to feature large windows requiring well-insulated walls, while achieving a singular look both inside and out for a spacious and open-plan family home. 

The company was also facing building materials scarcity and supply chain issues, which would lead to delays and cost blowouts. 

They needed a solution that was affordable and available, and offered speed and ease of construction to get to lock up stage quicker, while delivering on the luxury architectural finish that the homeowner was looking for. 

Homespace Builds chose LuxeWall® to deliver on these requirements. 

The Solution

Vish Joshi of Homespace Builds said she was looking for a product that was easy to use, quick and accessible. 

LuxeWall® ticked all those boxes, it is easy, quick to install and is a quality product, which means as a builder, I can have confidence in what the product brings to the project.  

LuxeWall® insulated panels come as a finished product, we don’t have to put extra insulation, timber frame plaster, so it’s very convenient. 

“We went with LuxeWall® for the Donnybrook home, as it offered such a wide variety of colours and finishes. 

“For the upper floor we used LuxeWall® in a COLORBOND® Matte Shale Grey finish, while we used LuxeWall® with a brick veneer rendered look on the ground floor. We have found it to be just such a versatile product to work with, and the homeowners are thrilled with the result,” she said. 

LuxeWall®’s pre-coated exterior modern colour palette provides a low maintenance and consistent exterior finish that is durable and suitable for the harsh Australian climate.  

The range of integrated insulation layers provides a thermal barrier around delivering a climate-controlled home designed for comfortable living and energy efficient lifestyles.  

LuxeWall® also delivers faster construction times, lower maintenance and resistance to building or ground movement and finishes, as well as cracking as experienced with traditional masonry and coated products.
