Nestled in the coveted beachside location of Coolangatta, the Pavilion North Kirra retirement community is a blend of practical living and aesthetic finesse.

Fabricator Tweed Coast Glass was tasked with creating seamless transitions between large windows, stacking doors, and sliding doors, all while maintaining top-notch water performance in sills and zero thresholds.

Tweed Coast Glass tackled the challenge by using a combination of products, including Ecowall225, Swan EVO doors, Hunter and Mac Evo framing, and the Proglide Ultra Flat sill. The team also used Hawkesbury Multifold doors and top hung sliders with 50mm awnings. The result is not just structurally sound but also a visual and functional triumph. The open-plan living spaces, accentuated by well-placed windows flood the interiors with natural light, giving an expansive and airy feel.

Beyond the technicalities, the work of these fabricators is a marriage of skill and innovation. It's not just about assembling materials but crafting an environment that enhances the residents' day-to-day living. The large terrace balconies offering ocean glimpses bear witness to the fabricators' dedication to elevating the living experience.

The complex stands as a testament to how pragmatic fabrication can turn a space into a sanctuary of comfort, blending privacy and luxury with the practical interplay of light and space.
