It must be appreciated that no building surface is perfectly flat and that the best that can be expected is the appearance of flatness. Unfortunately, this appearance can easily be destroyed by the effect of glancing light, whether natural or artificial. Illumination and Decoration of Flat Surfaces shows the effect of different light sources on a variety of lining materials and paints so that best results can be achieved.

Different types of building surfaces are investigated, including set plaster, fibrous plaster, hardboard and gypsum board with gloss and semi-gloss paint applied. This full-colour edition also discusses new building materials such as cement sheet, polystyrene and various composite panels, as well as new building practices, low embodied energy materials and higher energy efficiency of buildings.

Illumination and Decoration of Flat Surfaces is a must-have for people involved in the building industry, both commercial and residential.


  • This full-colour new edition has about 50% new material
  • New materials are examined, such as cement sheet, polystyrene and AAC

 Architects, building designers, builders, developers, and owners of commercial and domestic buildings, particularly those with new or newly renovated buildings. 

 Bob Cameron is a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Company Directors. In 2004 he was honoured as the only individual to win Sustainable Development Awards in Queensland presented by the State Government and the Premier.
