Architect: GM Design

Contractor: Glebeview Builders

IG Lintels Engineer: Kyle Alexander

The dramatic double height apex window at the front of the building, floods this beach front home with light and sunshine. The main open  plan living area opens on to a balcony terrace  with sliding retractable doors.  The design maximizes the sea  views by drawing the outside  in.

 

G.M. Design Architects called on IG’s creative steel lintel department to detail this unique structure. IG Engineer Kyle Alexander developed the structural steel framework to support the glazed gable apex and the roof structure above the balcony terrace. Spanning 8 metres long and 4.5 metres high this complex steel frame was constructed from a range of steel sections.

“A really interesting project for our team  to work on. When presented with the client’s brief we knew  immediately that IG Engineers should be involved in the design stage. We were very impressed with the level  of service provided by IG.”
