This luxury family home is located of the shores of Lake Macquaire. Capturing the view of the trees and water ensured that there were large expansive of glass used throughout the home
A dark powdercoat colour was selected to frame the views and complement the other feature furniture.v The large amount of glass throughout the house also meant that the thermal performance of the home needed to be considered. The use of a clear Low E glass helps to keep the rooms comfortable without detracting from the views.
The location also means that the house can be exposed to harsh weather conditions so finding the balance between large expanses of glass and weather performance was key.
A custom bifold window and hinged door combination opens away from one and other without a post to create a sense of openess. The raked highlight window frames are concealled to give the illusion of all glass.
Centor retractable screens were selected to give screened ventilation when he doors are open, but to retract a away when not in use so not to distract from the view.
