markilux Australia was pleased to recently be asked by Lend Lease - one of Australia’s largest and most reputable property and infrastructure companies - to assist in upgrading staff amenities at its Millers Point headquarters in Sydney.

Just opposite the new Barangaroo development, Lend Lease were looking for high quality, beautifully designed shading products to refresh and revitalise existing communal areas as a way of boosting staff interaction, as well as making the most of the excellent views of the harbour.

markilux Australia general manager Neil Marot worked closely with Simon Lightfoot from Blindmaster as well as the internal architectural department at Lend Lease to find the strongest, most aesthetically pleasing solution to fulfill Lend Lease’s shading requirements.

The design team at Lend Lease were particularly taken with the World of Colours fabric range, which made choosing the awning fabric the hardest decision of the entire project. Eventually, the choice was made to proceed with three fully automated, five metre wide markilux 990 full cassette folding-arm awnings. 

The pictures speak a thousand words, both about the quality and finish of our product, as well as the skill of the Blindmaster installation team. It’s fair to say that Lend Lease are thrilled with the final result and will no doubt be coming back to markilux Australia and Blindmaster for all its future shading needs.
