In association with Peter Fell.
Why live in the standard issue when you could live in a veritable sculpture? Good question, especially when you learn what else concrete has going for it. Contemporary and classic, smooth and hard, warm and cool — this minimalist material is marvellously multifaceted. As seen at this Christchurch home by Jo and Blaise Chamberlain, profiled in our October/November 2020 issue, it can be used to shape a dwelling that’s both striking and sensible.
The Chamberlains’ concrete was coloured with the Peter Fell system, which offers more than 80 shades (and custom options) that add extra visual appeal to the material’s practical pluses, like the heat it absorbs then releases to keep your home healthy while reducing your heating/cooling costs, and how easy it is to clean. And because Peter Fell hues are blended all the way through, your form of expression will stay true for decades.
