Gerard big hit on Grand Designs TV

A spectacular roofline on a Balinese-inspired pole home generated huge interest after it featured on Australia's top-rating Grand Designs TV show.

Seen by an estimated 1.8 million viewers, the hour-long episode followed the construction of a pavilion style "treehouse" with a Gerard Corona roof at Trinity Beach near Cairns in North Queensland.

Located on a hillside bordering World Heritage rainforest and with panoramic ocean views over the Coral Sea, the home features extensive indoor-outdoor flow with separate pavilions connected by covered walkways.

One of nine projects selected for Australia’s Grand Designs series from over 1000 submissions, the AU$1.7 million home was designed by award winning architect Chris Van Dyke for clients Daniel Leipnik and Andrew Preston.

"There was a lot of really positive feedback after the programme went on air and a lot of people singled out the roof as a feature. They really loved the roof and the shingle look," says Daniel. "It's amazing, the Gerard Corona product isn't that well known here, but it has definitely caught peoples attention now."
