orrugated steel roofs may look utilitarian but in Australia, they are an iconic element of the country’s architecture. The origins of this distinct look can be credited to John Lysaght, an Irishman who in 1857 saw the potential in corrugated iron sheeting and began exporting it to Australia. Its weatherproof and sturdy qualities quickly caught on and builders soon began using it widely in local homes and commerical buildings. Since then, NS Bluescope Lysaght has manufactured products that have quite literally shaped the nation from iconic corrugated roofs to large commercial and industrial projects; in Singapore, the firm has worked on iconic projects such as the Esplanade. Besides roofing, the brand’s steel coated products include walling, fences and structural formwork. With a resurgence in industrial-inspired design around the globe, Lysaght’s coated steel products have become ever more popular as designers and architects work to incorporate these metal panels to add a rugged edge to their projects. With such a wide range of Lysaght products to draw upon, we ask architectural interior designer Masha Kaya to design a glamorous home that showcases the modern appeal of the brand’s steel-coated products.
