Geberit was the brand of choice for the developers of an upmarket residential property in Mooloolaba on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland.

Known to locals formerly as the Pink House because of its striking exterior colour, the home built in the early 1900s, was located in one of the premium spots in Mooloolaba. The property was acquired by the Nexus Building Group in 2014 and the new Tangalooma sky home development was completed four years later in September 2018.

Each exclusive sky home stands out for its luxurious simplicity, showcasing extravagant architectural design combined with luxurious finishes and fittings for the discerning homeowner. The development offers four individually designed, spacious 400sqm apartments on four levels, each with a private lift. Expansive outdoor areas with sweeping water views, a private marina, quality interiors, and the latest in technology are part of the package.

Each luxury apartment has five contemporary bathrooms featuring state-of-the-art sanitary fittings from Geberit including in-wall Sigma8 cisterns, and Sigma70 and Sigma80 actuator plates.

Laz Dzufer of Nexus Building Group chose Geberit again for the brand’s state-of-the-art technology and outstanding service.

“We didn’t think twice when it came to the bathroom design. We wanted in-wall cisterns to achieve a modern look and save space. We knew that we could rely on Geberit’s quality products and outstanding service because we used their products in previous projects. When we first looked into concealed cisterns for our developments, we found that the quality of Geberit products suited our upmarket projects best. Therefore, Geberit was our first choice,” Dzufer explained.

“Especially with a concealed product, you want to have peace of mind that it works.”

Geberit actuator plates enhance the luxurious bathroom design of the Tangalooma sky homes. Sigma70 is Geberit’s lightest touch flush activation product featuring a soft-touch button, which creates an exceptionally quiet flush, and a thin plate of glass or stainless steel without button or knobs – floating only millimetres from the wall – with light fields to flush the toilet.

The Sigma80 actuator plate is operated by waving a hand over the button LED lights (full or half flush) on the touchless glass plate. Users can choose between an ‘always on’ or ‘always off’ light mode and five LED colour options, which means the LED lights can double-function as a sensor-activated ambient light. A selection of colour choices for the plates enables the designer to either make them a striking feature or blend them in the wall colour.

Key features of Geberit actuator plates include unique, ultra-small remote flush actuation; touchless mechanism; surface-even plates supporting a cohesive design; user-friendly odour extraction unit; selection of elegant colour schemes; and LED lights creating ambient lighting in the bathroom.
