Architecture firm Wood Marsh used the EDGE MAX 150mm structural glazed suite to create a full glass appearance on the facade of a major apartment project in Port Melbourne.
Mint Apartments is a five-storey, 16-unit complex designed by architectural firm Wood Marsh, and marketed by Hocking Stuart. Featuring a mix of one, two and three bedroom units, the project offers only a small number of apartments to maximise space and amenities for the occupants.
The striking glass facade has been created by employing EDGE’s MAX 150mm structural glazed suite. The building will feature EDGE’s new 166° structurally angled mullions, which will be installed both internally and externally to create a smooth undulation across the front. When combined with glass panels of different colours, the resulting composition will cause sunlight to reflect randomly in different spectrums and directions, mimicking the play of light on water.
The MAX suite’s double glazing will also benefit Mint Apartments’ occupants by providing comfortable thermal insulation, ensuring warmth in winter despite the chill of bay-side winds.
Mint Apartments will be completed around late 2016/ early 2017.
