Two products from the MAX range by EDGE Architectural Glazing Systems have been extensively incorporated in a new high-rise apartment building in Melbourne. Located at 101 Tram Road at the intersection of Doncaster and Tram Roads, the new apartment building, aptly named Panorama, rises 13 storeys into the air from its base on Doncaster Hill to offer beautiful views of the Melbourne CBD.
Completed in late 2016, the $48-million building features 210 luxury apartments in a mix of 1, 2 and 3-bedroom configurations.
Designed by Peddle Thorp architects, Panorama is split into two distinct designs. The frontage on Doncaster Road features a bold, sweeping design on a white front, juxtaposing well with the Westfield located just across the road.
The Tram Road front is not quite as large or dramatic. Tastefully paralleling the street, this section is set back, rising up behind the integrated car parking block at regular intervals. There are prominent balconies to every street-front apartment, maximising the stunning view for the residents. A simple communal entry hall links the two halves of the building.
EDGE’s MAX 100mm centre glazed window frames and MAX sliding doors have been used in Panorama to great effect. The bold black outlines of the framing system are a key aspect of the building’s visual appeal on all fronts.
Additionally, MAX’s high-quality double glazed systems keep interior temperature levels steady, despite the vast expanses of glass across the building. Occupants will be able to enjoy their stunning views to the full, without suffering hot or cold spots close to the glass.
