  • TECHNICAL ADVICE AND SUPPORT FOR THE ARCHITECT AND DEVELOPER
THE PROJECT

Located in the heart of Sydney’s inner-city suburb of Erskineville, one of several suburbs in an area undergoing the exciting transition from gritty industrial landscapes to much-desired modern urban villages, the $80 million Luxe On Eve boutique apartment community is a bold statement in contemporary design that also honours the area’s brick making, tanning and industrial heritage. A winning design in the 2015 City of Sydney Design Excellence Competition, Luxe On Eve features 71 apartments – many offering private balconies and secluded courtyard gardens surrounded by lush green foliage - across two beautifully crafted buildings that reach six levels in height and are visually enriched by the textural and tactile qualities of the natural materials used in their construction. Most notable among these materials is the striking steel cladding, strongly reflecting the area’s industrial roots, which adorns many of the sculptural forms of Luxe On Eve.

Because not only was it specified in the dramatic, bold ribbed LYSAGHT LONGLINE 305® profile. It was also specified in the pearlescent custom COLORBOND® steel colour Copper Penny™, which sparkles in the sun to make Luxe On Eve a truly shining example of stunning contemporary architecture.

THE LYSAGHT SOLUTION

Working closely from a very early stage with both the architect and the project developer’s head designer, Lysaght Business Development Manager Commercial/Industrial – NSW, Will Pereyra, ensured Lysaght provided all necessary support for their desired specification of the LYSAGHT LONGLINE 305® profile.

“The developer had generally used Tilt-Up panels in their construction so the use of cladding of this nature was a new experience for them, but one which they gladly took on in their desire to deliver a truly remarkable development,” Will explained. “A critical element at that early stage was ensuring the bold ribs and broad flat pans of the LYSAGHT LONGLINE 305® cladding would line up seamlessly and neatly with various features, such as windows, across all the surfaces where it was to be used.

“It really is crucial that in those early days of the design we work closely with architects as they do the set outs, to ensure everything comes together accordingly when they are specifying a particular profile.”

This belief in a very supportive approach is one held across the Lysaght team, who know the success realisation of a project starts with engaging with the architect, looking closely at their models and drawings and collaborating in developing solutions based on their architectural intent.

Lysaght’s supportive approach naturally also extends to the developer, who is always at the challenging point where the rubber truly meets the road, in providing anything they may require for successful delivery of a project.

“The developer has to weigh up very practical considerations regarding pricing and outcomes against what they want to achieve and we support them with all the information and technical advice we can to ensure they can do just that,” Will said.

“On this project the developer was extremely pleased with the outcome – the results were beautiful with the LYSAGHT LONGLINE 305® cladding and they’ve told me they are planning to put the project forward for awards.

“At Lysaght we know that the success of a project absolutely depends on tireless hard work from start to completion, skilled attention to every detail and dedicated collaboration between all parties to achieve the very best results; it is what we delivered for the Luxe On Eve project and what we provide for every Lysaght customer.”

LYSAGHT LONGLINE 305® STEEL CLADDING

One of five European-inspired profiles available in Lysaght’s new ZENITH™ premium range, LYSAGHT LONGLINE 305® cladding is a distinctive and dramatic profile favoured by architects for the visual interest it adds to large areas by casting evolving shadows throughout the day.

For even greater design freedom and aesthetic interest, LYSAGHT LONGLINE 305® cladding can also be fluted and tapered to create strong lines radiating out from a central point and easily accommodate curvilinear structures.

This strong and durable profile has a standard cover width of 305mm, is suitable for roof pitches as low as one degree, and features a specially designed concealed-fix system that maintains the clean linear visual, allows for thermal expansion and eliminates screw penetrations that can potentially allow water ingress.

The LYSAGHT ZENITH™ range is available in unpainted ZINCALUME ® steel, the contemporary COLORBOND® steel colour range, the superb COLORBOND® Metallic steel colour range and the expansive colour array of the LYSAGHT YOURCOLOR™ custom colour offer.
