Architects working on the Sandy Hill Apartments project engaged Axiom Group to provide a practical solution to their vision for a glazed balustrade.

Located at 220 Bay Rd, Sandringham, Victoria, the $50 million Stage One of Sandy Hill Apartments comprises of 187 of the 450 apartments to be constructed on the expansive Bay Road site. Buxton Constructions is the builder of the apartment project, which is designed by Watson Young Architects.

The architects’ vision for the glazed balustrade required a striking angled pattern on the glass, which was achieved through a little known ceramic coating process.

Encompassing over a kilometre of balustrade in three specific colours, the end result forms an integral part of the building’s striking appearance.
