On the surface, it’s not an uncommon story, an Architect and Carpenter couple work together to build an amazing space for their home and to showcase their talents. The big difference however is the motivation here. Five motivations in fact – five little reasons that Mickey Wolf and Steve Boyle from SBUILT renovated their family home in Brisbane. The couple’s five children became the very inspiration for the beautiful home they created.

Wolf and Boyle selected materials that could cope with the day-to-day rigours of five energetic children. These materials include Ecoply® plywood and Formrite®. Ecoply has been used extensively on the new lower of the renovation on the entire ceiling and fifty percent of the walls.

To contrast the plywood walls and ceilings, black-faced Formrite with ply edges was selected. Formrite is usually used for concrete formwork but its durability and smooth protective coating also makes it suitable for cabinetry.

Sustainability is a driver in the decision-making at SBUILT. Led by a desire to look out for the next generation, materials are chosen that will last and have been produced in a sustainable way. It’s clear that Ecoply and Formrite have found a new fan in Boyle. And with their eye for design, details and the environment, Boyle, Wolf and SBUILT are sure to find plenty of fans in the future.
