Breezway Altair louvre windows were extensively integrated into a heritage home in St Kilda, Melbourne to assist with energy efficiency by reducing the need for air conditioning in the living space.

Designed and built by architect David Saunders from S2 Design, the project is a magnificent showcase of amazing products, workmanship and design. The eye-catching project is an extensive restoration in addition to alterations and additions, to a heritage-significant Victorian dwelling in the City of Port Phillip.

Breezway Altair louvre windows were incorporated into the contemporary and environmentally sustainable design to assist with energy efficiency, allowing the home to be maintained at a comfortable temperature without the need for traditional air conditioning.

Altair louvre windows have also been installed in the bright and colourful kitchen to encourage cross-flow ventilation and also to provide make-up air when removing cooking smells. Altair louvres with Satina glass blades in the ensuite allow hot steam and moisture to escape quickly while still providing ventilation and privacy.

A double bay Altair louvre window has been used up high in the living areas to remove hot air build-up and replace with cooling southerly sea breezes.

A stunning piece of contemporary architecture, demonstrated thorough social, functional and environmental considerations, the heritage home was featured in a national television series called ‘Australia’s Best Houses’.
