The Country Club Huapai is a Premier Retirement Lifestyle facility located on the original Nobilo Estate winery. It is the newest addition to the prestigious Hopper Living Retirement Lifestyle Villages in the Rodney/Waitakere region. It offers a range of superior homes and apartments that embrace the relaxing lifestyle benefits of the country, while being so close to city amenities.
Country Club Huapai’s main building, at 23 Vintry Drive, is a stylish and contemporary structure that combines low maintenance materials with clean and classical lines and complementary colour combinations. The building houses a reception, bar, restaurant, meeting facilities and 46 apartments on the upper levels.
Having used Provista Balustrade Systems on previous projects, FORM Building and Developments and Ignite Architects specified Provista’s PANORAMA Semi-frameless glass to provide safe and stylish balustrades to the decks of the 46 apartments on both the east and west facing sides of the building. In all some 360m of PANORAMA balustrading has been installed across the facility.
The balustrade features a Matt Black powder coat finish in keeping with the joinery and other structural elements and secondary colour schemes. Also complementing the style of the building and its features, the Provista ‘Retro’ rectangular handrail profile has been used. Provista’s ‘Ultra’ three-way post profile provides the vertical structure to the balustrades. The glass utilised is Metro Performance Glass 10mm Toughened Safety Glass.
Provista Semi-frameless solutions are very adaptable to different building types, looking great on modern or classical residential or commercial structures and, in this case, have provided a safe, practical and modern solution that complements the design and look of the timeless and attractive appearance of Country Club Huapai.
Provista Balustrade Systems solutions are compliant with all NZ regulations and suited to A, B, E and C3 residential and commercial applications.
