Breezway Louvres have been used extensively in the first two levels of the external façade in the outdoor room of this newly renovated Hotel.

Due to heritage-listed requirements, the tired run-down cedar double hung window frames have been restored out on the Terrace in Units One, Two and Three. The double hung sashes have been fixed shut and Altair Louvre Component Systems have been installed to allow fresh, coastal breezes into each apartment. The new owners will be able to sit back and enjoy extended living space at any time of the year along with the benefits of a naturally ventilated apartment without the need for air conditioning.

Coastal Lifestyle Combined With Traditional House-Sized Units

CALOUNDRA, QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA

Christopher Design Group has done a remarkable job with this interesting request from his clients to have a coastal lifestyle combined with two traditional house-sized units.

Bathroom inside houze sized unit
Breezway Louvres help ventilate kitchen area

Both townhouses enjoy street frontage and relaxing views of a park behind the property along with a small swimming pool and a seamless indoor/outdoor design.

The plan utilises floor-to-ceiling glazing including Breezway Louvre Windows and bi-fold doors to help achieve this seamless integration.

There are three bedrooms on the top floor of each home and the split-level design provides a feeling of spaciousness that is much needed on this narrow site.

The lower level of the units differ slightly with one encompassing a media room and open plan kitchen and living area whilst the other incorporates an all-in-one living space and pantry in the kitchen.

The result of the design allows for very livable, house-sized units that have the capacity to change with the clients over time.

This project has won the following award:

  • Building Designers Association of Queensland (BDAQ) – State Awards 2017 for Multi-Residential Projects up to 6 Dwelling Units

Materials incorporated into the construction include timber floors, premium European appliances, natural stone surfaces and sustainable glazing such as Altair Louvre Windows by Breezway.

The use of Breezway Louvres with the Stronghold System allow spectacular uninterrupted views out onto the surrounding environment while opening wide to provide maximum ventilation to keeps occupants cool and comfortable. When closed, the design of the Breezway Altair Louvre provides the tightest sealing to offer protection from wind and rain. The Stronghold System also provides extra strength and safety, making the windows compliant with fall prevention standards required for such multi-level buildings.

In addition to the One Wharf Road Apartments, also designed by Marchese Partners, these two new buildings have re-defined the area of Gladesville that now link life and luxury into one harmonious space.
