Two Roads Farm is a landmark project for Mosaic Constructions and also the personal home of the company's founder. Situated in the rolling hills around Maleny it looks out to spectacular natural views of the Blackall range. A home to raise a family, living close to nature, and growing their own food. Not surprisingly the emphasis is on natural materials with oiled timber and split stone featuring throughout. Polished concrete fits together perfectly with these materials.
The work completed by ‘Honed+Polished Concrete’ was finished to an exceptional standard and resulted in a very high quality finish throughout the house. I would highly recommend Honed+Polished Concrete as their level of professionalism and attention to detail throughout the entire construction process, exceeded all expectations, and ultimately resulted in an outstanding finished product which I am extremely pleased with.
The finished floor is a critical design element within the overall complexity of design intent for this house. It is also a beautiful finished floor to walk on and live with.
I really appreciated the extreme care that was taken towards the complex design, as well as the level of diligence, to complete the project to an extremely high standard. Honed+Polished Concrete is certainly a company that I trust and would happily use again. Christopher Bradley and his team should be commended for their efforts.
The clients were very specific about the type of grey they wanted the floor and so the concrete supplier made 6 samples of different greys which we polished. With this kind of detail it's no surprise then that this home took out the grand prize for the Master Builders Association best home 2016 for the region, while we picked up two awards as well.
The concrete was burnished using a mechanical trowel with the intention to keep as much of the patternation by the concreters in the finished floor as possible to express the simple beauty of concrete. Looking along the hallway to the viewing window and the modern sculpture beyond you can see the ripple effect in the reflection of the floor similar to a lake which creates a more relaxed, natural feeling than would a factory manufactured porcelain tile.
