Overlooking the stunning Pelican Waters on QLD’s Sunshine Coast, “The Pod” is an outstanding resort style home featuring a pavilion style layout where tropical landscapes, natural light and ventilation provide year round comfort and a seamless connection to the local environment.
Awarded the 2020 BDAQ Residential Design of the Year, this outstanding project by Christopher Design Group features 18 x Vantage MAGNUM™ sliding doors, including an 8m x 4m corner stacking door, raked windows to compliment the unique curved roof profile and an abundance of louvre galleries throughout. The end result is a statement and a jewel in the crown for Coast and Hinterland Glass and Aluminium.
The combination of sliders, corner stackers, louvres and fixed lights maximise natural light, ventilation and regulate seasonal temperature variation making it a stunning home to live in year round.
The connection this home provides to the waterfront is truly breathtaking.
The most technically demanding element of The Pod was the raked glass under the curved roof line, situated above the Elevate™ SlideMASTER™ 704 Sliding Door in the master bedroom. With 5 x radiuses in the single roof curve, precision was required to ensure measurements were accurate and glass was cut to size perfectly.
Vantage® Series 618 MAGNUM™ Sliding Doors feature stainless steel ICON™ hardware for a beautiful, long lasting finish. Each door was hand tooled and inspected to ensure a refined finish. Fabricating 18, premium door units required expert quality control and production management and a full commitment from everyone in our team.
Complimenting the large glass facades, privacy from the waterway and adjacent homes is achieved through the use of a grey tinted glass which also manages Solar Heat Gain in the warmer months.
