ShapeShell FR was used to create a unique ‘windbreak’ structure in the high wind corridor between two apartment buildings in Docklands, Melbourne.

Designed by McBride Charles Ryan, the Docklands BeachBall represents a creative solution to the practical challenge of a wind tunnel between the apartment buildings.

The unique windbreak, resembling a beach ball, was constructed of ShapeShell FR (Fire Retardant) and serves as an exit point for the apartments.
