An Industrial Design solution for complete access to the venue's surroundings, regardless of weather conditions.
Our team was engaged to design, manufacture and install an operable glass façade for a chapel in Bunurong Memorial Park, Melbourne.
As the chapel is cantilevered over a lake, the design offers patrons open-air access to the environment as desired, and protection from the elements when necessary. This flexibility in design enables the client to offer a unique facility capable of making the most of all weather conditions.
The façade consists of three large curved windows which form a floor-to-ceiling glass window in the ‘closed’ position. These windows slide down to waist height, creating a balustrade in the ‘open’ position. Each curved window weighs approximately two tonnes and is 7m long x 2.5m high. The windows are raised and lowered using synchronised electric actuators. We invested a significant amount of time cross-referencing the interface between the products and ensuring that weatherproofing and connection details were well resolved.
Elevating the user experience and giving the client a competitive advantage are two of Tilt’s guiding principles. This project delivered on both fronts.
