Safety, security and style were key priorities in the design of this stunning home in Alderley, QLD. Located seven kilometres north-west of the Brisbane CBD, the dual-level house enjoys stunning district views and features an L-shaped design, centred around a sparkling in-ground pool and tiled/timber terrace – an entertainer’s paradise.
Safetyline Jalousie louvre windows were the obvious choice, chosen by the architect for use throughout the property. Installed extensively around the pool on both levels of the home, the louvre windows blend seamlessly into the cream, charcoal and timber exterior of the home for a stylish finish.
The louvres allow maximum cross-ventilation and harness cooling breezes coming across the pool, even on Brisbane’s hottest days. By reducing reliance on air conditioning, energy costs for the home have in turn been reduced.
Safety was of paramount concern to the owners of the home, particularly with windows overlooking the pool from the second level. Safetyline Jalousie louvres can be left open to maximise air circulation whilst providing a safe environment, with no risk of children falling through or getting stuck in the louvres.
Ground floor louvres can be left open even when the owners aren’t home, thanks to impenetrable security, unique to Safetyline Jalousie. This enables maximum air flow to the home, 24 hours a day.
Frosted glass was used on the bathroom louvres to allow privacy as well as ventilation. With Safetyline Jalousie louvres installed, there was no need for extractor fans, creating a more energy efficient bathroom.
