Products euroBLADE custom suspended ceilings
Europanel are extraordinarily proud of being the ‘go to’ supplier for challenging projects requiring a tailored outcome and our fully customisable euroBLADE has been used to dramatic effect in creating the stunning Ice Cave at the Skye Hotel Suites in Sydney’s CBD.
Following on from the successful supply and install of our custom suspended euroBLADE to form the striking porte-cochère ceiling for QT Hotel at the Pacific Bondi Beach, europanel were sought out by the same contractor as a solution focused supplier that would take on the projects that other manufacturers didn’t want to, or know how to, do.
Firstly, there was the spectacular design and renders by renowned architect, Koichi Takada, and then there was the all-important questions about ‘how to’ recreate the concepts into the physical form and ‘what materials’ would withstand the constant humidity and moisture levels prevalent within a heated swimming pool environment and this is where europanel come into their own.
The europanel design team were brought in at the early stages of design development by the Arc by Crown project team, allowing them to collaborate, interrogate and have the materials tested to meet the brief and consequently attain the requisite engineer certification for the ‘heavy duty suspension system’ installed.
The project was realised on site by the europanel delivery team, from fabrication to installation, including the all-important shop drawings integral to this seamless and breathtaking outcome.
The europanel team did a magnificent job completing this project spot on budget and delivered from concept through to completion within a 16-week program.
