Travertine house with an artificially aged facade – a harmonious union of styles

I am pleased to welcome back visitors to the pages of Forum City. An unusual house Built in the upmarket district of Melbourne South Yarra. Since the street is built mainly with old buildings, the mansion was made only two stories high and used the artificial aging of the facade through a special treatment of travertine. The project was developed by the Australian architecture and design studio b.e architecture.

The limestone tuff is light in color, most often yellowish, and has a porous structure. With the exterior finish, it soaks up the digs and gas and takes on the appearance of an old. Depending on the direction of the sanding, it changes shade. It cannot be distinguished from limestone from afar, as the two stones look exactly alike.

Travertine is soft and well-machined. This is why it was used to build and decorate places of worship in the areas where it was found. Many buildings have survived in Chechnya, such as the central mosque in Grozny and schools and religious sites across the republic.

In Europe, travertine covers the facades of the Colosseum and St. Peter's Cathedral. One of the largest deposits of limestone tuff is near Peter. It was used in the decoration of some subway stations. Krasnodar plans to decorate the stadium, which has just begun construction.

The balconies of the bedrooms are situated in wall niches and the rooms are protected from the scorching rays and wind. Movable panels of wooden slats can be used as exterior curtains. They are made in the rustic style and are identical in shape to the wickets. Opposite the courtyard entrance is a door to the house, also located in an alcove.
