House wrapped in Marley Eternit roof tiles wins award

A striking suburban home by Bosske Architects, which is wrapped entirely in Marley Eternit Acme Red Smooth clay roof tiles, has received a prestigious Australian Think Brick design award. Now in its ninth year, the Think Brick Awards celebrates design excellence in the use of clay brick, concrete masonry and roof tiles by Australia’s best architects and designers.

Camino House was designed in the manner of an ‘oast’ or hop kiln, with the new part of the building mimicking the chimney forms of the surrounding housing, reflecting the suburb’s history, yet at the same time creating a striking aesthetic. UK-manufactured Acme Red Smooth single camber clay plain tiles were chosen by the project’s architects, Bosske, as a natural product that could be used on the facade, as well as the roof, to create a unifying sense to the form.

Ms Elizabeth McIntyre, CEO of the Roofing Tile Association of Australia and Think Brick Australia, was one of the judges on the panel. Ms McIntyre said "The judges chose Camino House as one of the winners this year because it opened their eyes to the incredible design opportunities available through use of roof tiles. The roof structure on Camino House, clad in the beautiful smooth red roof tiles from Marley Eternit, is a striking design that showcases how roof tiles can move from traditional to contemporary application not only on the roof but also on the façade."
