Architecturally inspired systems for superior style and performance

Hamilton House, located in Yandina Creek, Queensland, is a two-level concrete and glass home spanning an incredible 1300m2. Reminiscent of a Roman pallazzo, it is a house to take your breath away.

The brief was to create a large 21st-century home with the aesthetics and volumes of a Public Art Gallery. Sustainability was a key consideration for the project, as was balancing the impact of an ultra-modern dwelling with its idyllic rural surrounds. Designed by MahawaDesign and built by ProTilt, the home was constructed in exactly nine months using precast concrete custom panels. The home soars to a height of 10.5m, and boasts five luxurious bedrooms, 3.5m-high ceilings, a magnificent 20m-long entry bridge, five-and-a-half bathrooms, a media room, a library, a nine-metre lap pool, and a vast marble staircase rising to nine metres in height. Moveable walls of glass open up the entire enormous formal living room to the outside – combining four ‘supersize’ bifolds, eight bifolds, and a four stacker unit.

The project presented a number of challenges, not least of which were due to the extremely large openings - some 9m in length x 3m in height - and differing door arrangements. Fabricator, Lifestyle Windows, based in Coolum, Queensland, had its work cut out for it. Known for their outstanding designs and innovations in aluminium windows and doors, the diverse selection of products offered by Lifestyle Windows suits both residential and commercial applications. After lengthy and detailed meetings over many months, Lifestyle Windows and MahawaDesign agreed to use Elevate™ window and door systems throughout the project.

The Elevate™ Aluminium Systems range offered the perfect range of features, not least of which were its design appeal, robust construction and ability to offer compatibility of appearance throughout the home. High-quality products used include Elevate™ Aluminium Systems Series 400 Centre Glaze Framing, Series 411 Top-hung Bifolds, Series 400 Hinge and Pivot Doors, Series 50 Stacking Sliding Doors and Vantage Series 618 Doors. The client could not have been happier with the prompt and intelligent service offered by the team at Lifestyle Windows. The Elevate™ Aluminium Systems have now been in place for one year and have performed exceedingly well, contributing to a stunningly private country retreat of classic interior modernity which contrasts perfectly with the strong construction.
