Contemporary Aluminium Windows and Doors for your lifestyle


Peregian Beach is a tiny piece of paradise on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast. With its proximity to sapphire-blue waters, salted air and white sands that seem to stretch forever, it fits every cliché you could possibly throw at it. Is it any wonder the owners wouldn’t let any challenge stand between their new home and the beauty of the surrounding environs?

One of the most challenging aspects of the build included a very steep and sandy block. In fact, just holding back the sand was to be a feat in itself. Other challenges were the need to select building materials that could withstand extremes of temperature and winds while minimising the site’s carbon footprint and ensuring the occupants’ comfort.

The challenge of the steep block was overcome using careful landscape-tiering and placing the majority of the living areas on one level. To ensure outstanding sustainability and comfort outcomes, the experts at Lifestyle Windows recommended using energy-efficient glass, and windows and doors from the world-class AWS range.

Series 618 sliding doors allowed large panels to be installed in the living areas and bedrooms, removing any impediment to the sweeping views. Series 525 louvres glazed with SolTech Neutral glass open the home up to the sea breeze and the great outdoors whilst satisfying climate assessment requirements. And Series 400 Commercial framing was used for the large expanses of clerestory glazing that flood the house with abundant natural light.

According to Lifestyle Windows, “The clients remained positive and excited throughout the entire build, and the awesome team of subbies and carpenters were all determined to achieve a quality build. Despite all the obstacles, it turned out to be one of the best locations in Australia to go to work every day!”
