The DECO Australia range of architectural products and finishes continues to be an integral part of the specification for building projects, especially in retail and hospitality segments. DECO’s high quality, decorative aluminium finishes and products can effectively enhance the exterior and interior of any store, restaurant or hospitality space.
Bring your design concepts to life with DECO’s exclusive natural timber, marble, concrete and rust-look finishes available across a range of aluminium building systems.
Below are some of our favourite designs utilising DECO products and finishes.
First impressions are everything, which is why facades can impact how passers-by and visitors perceive your store. This storefront design for the Gold Coast Kookai store by Alexander Cavill Architects features a contemporary beach design that perfectly captures the lifestyle of sunny Queensland.
The louvres featured on this store were specified in DecoWood’s Natural Curly Birch finish to enhance the coastal vibe while the low-maintenance nature of the product made it ideal for this busy retail precinct.
Mosaic Constructions utilised DecoSlat’s 65x16 solid aluminium slats to build cabanas around the pool and BBQ areas. The slats were specified in DecoWood’s marine grade powder coating ‘Weathered Timber’ finish due to its Super Durable qualities and low-maintenance nature, as well as to provide the ‘weathered’ design aesthetic sought by the designers for this resort-style inspired facility.
No sanding, painting, staining or oiling is required for DECO’s range of architectural building systems and finishes. The low maintenance requirement and graffiti resistance of these products are perfect for busy hospitality environments such as hotels.
Long lasting aluminium is the material of choice in the building industry. Unlike timber, aluminium is not susceptible to rot, warping or termite attacks. When it comes to choosing a material for your windows and doors, timber-look aluminium offers a wide range of benefits.
To achieve the desired woodgrain aesthetic, but without the associated issues of using real timber, the Retail Designers specified DecoWood for the window and door frames of Comuna Cantina in Brisbane CBD.
Any type of aluminium window or door is available in DecoWood woodgrain finishes including flyscreens and security screens.
Maintech Solutions in WA applied DecoClad Narrowline aluminium cladding in a unique cross-hatch pattern to portray Oporto’s fresh and vibrant brand personality. DecoClad’s lightweight characteristics allowed the builder to install the product quickly and easily without disrupting business.
Exterior cladding trends in commercial projects are strongly influenced by recent events and customer demands. After fire incidents at London’s Grenfell Tower and Melbourne’s Lacrosse Tower, fire safety and certification are at the forefront of client concerns.
DecoClad aluminium cladding is the fire-safe, durable alternative to traditional cladding. It is made from 100 per cent aluminium and has been tested and certified to Australian Standards 1530.1 and 1530.3, and complies with the National Construction Code as a non-combustible material.
