Residence Prefab Precision by ARKit


ARKit’s prefabricated wall panels made even this addition to an historic residence on a modest site painless. These interlocking panels with integral insulation and wood or plaster interiors are precisely crafted for large performance.

Employing usually undervalued short lengths of timber, in this case red cedar, the sustainably sourced lumber also is inherently pest and rot resistant. In this Melbourne, Australia residence the building addition, interior and exterior, was factory created and assembled on web site.

The new kitchen, living, and dining area rest on a concrete slab, heated to warm its exposed aggregate. A double height unit joins the authentic property with its modern yet respectful expansion.

As part of their regular passive style characteristics, ARKit set up red cedar external sun screens. The wooden shades are angled to decrease the glare of the morning sun on the backyard facing window wall. And their normal rusty cedar tones produce a rich contrast and depth with their dark grey counterparts.



The radiant open interior is lined with tailored white cabinets and Carrera marble counters and back splash on a single end. A finely crafted pine plywood staircase is wrapped in open floating pine shelves. I love to see a simple materials elevated to art as the plywood is in this impeccable stair.
