Geberit concealed cisterns were specified by the architects of the Astonia Residences, a boutique development on Cliff Street, Milsons Point in Sydney. Designed by Nettleton Tribe architects for CSPD Pty Ltd, the project comprises of eight expansive apartments, each featuring a minimum of three bedrooms and three bathrooms.
The prices ranged from $4 million to over $15 million for the penthouse, setting a new record for an off-the-plan apartment on Sydney’s north shore. Though these prices surprised many in a city known for its high cost of housing, what was remarkable was the fact that all the apartments were sold within three weeks of listing.
Commenting on the appeal of the development, Gosia Piotrowski, Senior Associate and Interior Designer at Nettleton Tribe, explains that the apartments have a magnificent vista across Lavender Bay, with Harbour Bridge views. The design brief was to open up the interior living areas to capitalise on the breath-taking panorama.
The average price of $22,500 per square metre was sufficient incentive to ensure all the living spaces were used to the fullest potential without compromising other areas of the apartments.
When it came to the bathrooms, Gosia and her team specified Geberit concealed cisterns as they offered greater flexibility during the design process. Placing the cisterns behind the wall allowed the design team to maximise the internal space as well as select a pan that was best suited to their overall design. Geberit Sigma01 flush buttons were chosen for the organic look.
The Geberit product range maximises design freedom for architects and designers. The extensive range of sophisticated and elegant button designs and finishes complements the look of any contemporary bathroom while the 4 Wells star rated concealed cisterns can be matched with a vast range of pans, including back to wall and wall hung options. The choice of mechanical or pneumatic flush options allows for even greater design flexibility.
Geberit cisterns can be concealed in vanity hobs and even in ceilings, because the flush button can be placed remotely, up to three metres from the pan.
According to Gosia, Geberit concealed cisterns were ideal for the smaller bathrooms, or ‘powder rooms’ in the Astonia development, allowing them to maintain the luxury of space, with clean lines and uninterrupted tiling being a signature feature. In addition to offering design freedom, the Geberit range provides the quality and reliability inherent in Swiss design and manufacturing. Geberit’s concealed cisterns come with an industry-leading 15-year warranty and spare parts availability of 25 years.
