Floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding doors from Capral Aluminium were specified for a new coastal home in south-east Gippsland to provide beautiful views for the residents.
Located in Cape Liptrap, this fairly modest 250-square-metre house has been designed by Hayne Wadley Architects with its back to the south to ensure protection from the elements including the southerly and westerly winds from Bass Strait. The entire northern face of the house features floor-to-ceiling Capral AGS 400 Narrowline windows, as well as a large deck and broad timber staircase, which loosely takes the form of a grandstand.
The entrance at the building’s centre provides a glimpse of the majestic view beyond and separates the primary living area and kitchen from the bedrooms. The panoramic view is fully revealed in the open-plan kitchen and living area through expansive glazing covering an 11-metre length using Capral AGS 889 sliding doors.
Products used in the beach house include Capral AGS 400 Narrowline framing and Capral AGS 889 sliding door (superseded by AGS 900 sliding door) in a charcoal powder-coated finish.
