This project has just received the 2020 Design Matters National Building Design Award in the Commercial building under $2M category. The building includes a new double height timber framed glazed facade overlooking a garden setting with a mature Melia (white cedar) tree.
In order to keep the double height glazed facade as expansive and simple as possible, laminated Victorian Ash timber was used to provide structural strength to act as both glazing and structural frame with no visible structure – just a timber-framed facade.
The Paarhammer ECO-facade also offers the highest level of thermal efficiency for a double height expanse of glass while the aluminium external cladding of this west facing glazing system is weather resistant and low maintenance.
