Designed by Morris Nunn Architects and built by
Fairbrother Pty Ltd, Saffire Freycinet is an iconic development for the
Australian Tourism Industry. Its concept and design are like no other in the
country, capturing the essence of this unique region and connecting with its
Paarhammer made doors for each of the 20 accommodation
suites, sliding doors, bi-fold doors and bi-fold window for treatment rooms,
and pivot doors for the main building including the entrance doors. The pivot
doors vary in height from 2.4m to 3m, the sliding doors have 2.5m by 2.5m
individual leaves and all are double glazed.
Client’s needs were for high energy efficiency and
acoustic benefits, especially between individual units and for all
treatment/spa rooms. Windows and doors had to have a premium feel and a high
level of proven sustainability.
The overall outcome is a stunningly beautiful
building complex with many sustainable features, sympathetic to the environment
and with a minimal footprint.
