Downie North Architects and EB Construction approached TILT with a concept to design a large single panel counterbalanced garage door for a residential warehouse conversion in Surry Hills.
The design intent was to present the feature as a continuous form of the facade, representing as a single element to complement the urban surrounds. The counterbalancing mechanisms were also to be exposed to tie into this aesthetic which combines untouched heritage structures complemented with high-tech contemporary materials.
TILT designed the 6m x 2m operable garage door using a single piece steel frame clad with perforated and anodised aluminium panels. Paying great attention to detail, the door is designed such that the hole pattern is continuous across individual sheets.
