In an effort to enhance the aesthetics and maximise the use of apartment-type spaces, architects are embracing the challenge and designing innovative new student accommodation projects. To support their design direction and achieve the project objectives, architects are increasingly looking for building products that allow them to stretch the boundaries of the past and deliver superior outcomes.
A classic example of such innovation is the design of this eight-storey student accommodation block located on the busy Gardeners Road in Kingsford, NSW.
Architect Max Sgammotta has created floor-to-ceiling curtains of Safetyline Jalousie louvre windows on each balcony, creating a unique and versatile indoor-outdoor space with uninterrupted views of the surrounding area for the students.
The robust, inbuilt security feature, exclusive to Safetyline Jalousie, provides a safe and secure living space for students.
Innovative Louvre Windows Safetyline Jalousie’s innovative louvre windows deliver ultimate control of the airflow to the apartments, allowing cool breezes in during the warmer months, and keeping cold air out in winter.
Marine-grade window seals feature on all four sides of each louvre blade, providing an effective acoustic barrier from the peak hour traffic noise below and protection from the southerly winds.
Sgammotta was particularly impressed with the nice detail for the floating glass attached to the framing mechanism. He said, “Safetyline Jalousie louvre windows are fantastic.
The windows finishes are very clean, tidy and detailed, I’ve recommended these windows on several other projects as well.”
As an incentive for the development of student accommodation in Brisbane’s inner city, the Brisbane City Council and Queensland Urban Utilities introduced reduced infrastructure charges earlier this year.
