The Rose Garden Apartments in Albany, Auckland, will eventually be the largest apartment complex in New Zealand with over 800 apartments. The project's first stage was designed by Context Architects and delivered by CMP Construction, who engaged Designer Stainless to supply and install the glass balustrading on the project.
The design was created to give a feeling of light and space, all achieved with the use of curved and flat glass balustrades and expansive window areas. Central to this design was creating great places to live; apartments have a zigzag frontage that gives great views of the adjacent lake, central green spaces and bush clad ridges to the north. Curved balustrades enhance indoor-outdoor flow by creating a seamless uninterrupted view of the surrounding area while the application of Glasshape's VisionInk — Ceramic Ink to the glass ensured that there was a degree of privacy where it was called for.
Designer Stainless engaged Glasshape to supply the balustrading glass because of their ability to supply curved tempered glass as well as print on glass. Glasshape would like to congratulate them on the completion of stage one and look forward to working with them on the next stages.
