Vitrastone, a natural stone cladding system from Fairview was specified to help achieve a modern frontage on a mixed use development located in Bondi Junction, Sydney.

Designed by award-winning architectural practice, MHN Design Union for Stargate Property Group, Encore on the bustling Oxford Street is a stunning building offering retail space and sustainable residential apartments.

The project involved the redevelopment of the existing two-storey façade into a three-storey podium that aligns with the street. The modern frontage was achieved through the use of Fairview’s natural stone cladding system, Vitrastone in Pale Sandstone on the first two floors. The podium on level three features Fairview’s deemed to satisfy non-combustible aluminium cladding Vitracore G2, in the popular Brushed Copper finish. The cladding products were expertly installed by the team at JJP Group.

The residential apartments rise 11 storeys, providing occupants with spectacular views from every angle. The chequered pattern of the construction comes from the use of Vitracore G2, this time in Frost White, Monument Grey and Cool Grey.
