Tweed Terrace Residence
Award-Winning Organic Formwork Exterior
About the project
Collaborating with Raunik Architecture and GCB builders, Sculpt Studios worked to deliver the design development, fabrication and installation of the exterior for the iconic and affectionately known ’Egg House’ in Tweed Heads, NSW.
Sculpt Studios developed a for-construction digital 3D model and a fabrication methodology to suit the design intent and feasibility of this project. Focusing on factors such as budget, accessibility and installation methods while utilising advanced design and manufacturing technologies to achieve this award-winning design. The Sculpt Studios team used digital 3d machined fabrication of curved/organic concrete formwork in conjunction with a systematically installed formwork to create this design. Sculpt Studios Artists also used their specialised skills to hand shape and finish many of the internal elements.
We are proud to have been involved with this standout architectural project which has claimed many awards, including the MBA award – excellence in building awards NSW 2019; Best contract house $ 4 million to $ 5 million; and Best use of Concrete Award in 2019.
