MAX double glazed framing systems from EDGE Architectural were specified for the doors and windows at Lucia Apartments, a 400-unit residential development located in Melbourne’s South Yarra.

Designed by Elenberg Fraser, Lucia is a two-tower luxury development from LYZ Property Group offering residents easy accessibility to Chapel Street’s cafe culture, top shopping spots and night life, along with excellent amenities within the towers.

Lucia’s impressive entrance welcomes residents into a glamorous world of luxury with mirror-clad elevator halls and an artistically structured external lap pool. Gym, spa and resident lounges provide an additional level of amenity, offering something special for tenants.

Lucia’s window and door specification adds to the overall architectural aesthetic with sliding doors, awning windows and floor-to-ceiling fixed windows allowing natural sunlight and fresh air to spill into the interior space.

MAX double glazed framing systems from EDGE Architectural were specified for the development, allowing Lucia’s apartments to offer increased interior comfort all year round. Heat gain and loss become significantly more obvious with a smaller unit footprint, making window performance and temperature transfer paramount to successful design. With MAX framing systems, windows will transfer less heat into the internal space in the warmer months while the double glazed frames will keep warmth inside during winter. 

Double glazing and thermally broken window specifications enable residents to reduce dependency on artificial heating and cooling systems, benefiting the environment, internal air quality and energy bills. An Australian-made window solution, MAX framing is designed and produced in Dandenong South, providing the assurance of quality and service.
