Maison Residences is a mixed use development designed around a heritage-listed hotel in Hunters Hill, NSW. The Hunters Hill Hotel is a local landmark designed by Sydney Ancher, one of Australia’s foremost Modernist architects.
The Maison project involved the refurbishment of the heritage hotel and the addition of 2500 square metres of retail space as well as 41 luxury apartments. With the Hunters Hill Hotel forming the centrepiece of the mixed use development, Squillace Nicholas Architects took care to use design cues from the heritage structure and blend them into Maison’s contemporary fabric, thereby, preserving the original character of the building. New buildings to the north and west of the hotel are separated from it by discreet link structures.
Shev Constructions used 1000 square metres of Alpolic Charcoal and 300 square metres of Prodema Rustic panels as cladding for Maison Residences.
"Shev Constructions have a strong, longstanding relationship with SGI Architectural, the suppliers of Alpolic F/R and Prodema. We worked collaboratively with SGI to provide a complete supply, fabrication and installation package for the external cladding at Maison Residences, Hunters Hill,” said Seamus Marnell and Kevin Pigott, directors of Shev Constructions.
“In keeping with our policy of meticulous quality control, Shev Constructions assisted with panel design enabling our company to have an input into the practical aspect of the constructions and the fitting, ensuring the client's expectations of a superior finished product were realised. Since completion, we have been awarded Stage 2, The Deux Apartments project. This demonstrates that the collaboration between SGI Architectural and Shev Constructions is a successful one and the client is more than happy to continue to use superior products for an outstanding result.”
