Designed to look like a three-dimensional kaleidoscope that ignores the laws of physics, Lighthouse Tower in Melbourne's CBD is a 69-storey residential development comprising 607 units, an automated car parking stacker system, recreational facilities, resident lounge areas, and amazing views across Melbourne.
Using traditional masonry techniques for achieving corners, Lighthouse Tower gives the illusion that it is turning on its axis. The corner-free appearance and reflective colour changing panels create a vibrant mosaic that stands out in Melbourne's urban setting. The design also maximises natural light and ventilation, whilst providing residents with privacy and exclusive panoramic views of the city.
Interior design schemes include timber veneers, natural stone benchtops, full height doors, integrated T.V. units and zoned mood lighting. Residents have access to abundant common spaces, such as modern lounges and dining rooms, a 25m indoor pool, an outdoor heated spa, and a gym with an outdoor exercise terrace.
Lighthouse Tower required great attention to detail to create the minimalistic interiors designed by architects Elenburg Fraser. Custom solutions were required to meet this level of detail, including the installation of 2,500 EZYJamb door jamb systems throughout the building to create full height concealed door frames. EZY Finishing Sections provide the desired square set interiors and flush finishes required to achieve a consistent contemporary theme throughout the build.
Manufactured by Studco Building Systems, EZYJamb and EZY Finishing Sections are made from the world-renowned BlueScope Steel, are simple to install and meet the finished surfaces standard AS/NZS 2311:2009 to ensure they can be painted immediately. This in turn saved the contractors, Multiplex time and money when completing the project.
To ensure the interior met the luxurious needs of this demanding design, it was imperative for the developers to partner with a provider that could offer a high level of service, including fast turnaround on technical enquiries, flexibility in design constraints and a reliable supply of products. Constant collaboration between Multiplex and Studco was imperative to complete Lighthouse Tower in the given time constraints. This is a testament to Studco's mission of making sure their customers are industry leaders, through providing a competitive edge and quality finish with any project.
