Project QT Bondi Porte Cochere
Client Hutchinson Builders
Architect Bates Smart | Sydney
Products euroBLADE (custom)
Bates Smart required a prefinished lightweight beam that could be manufactured to suit the curve of the Porte Cochere ceiling designed for QT Bondi.
The beams were constructed from marine grade plywood, fully sealed in 2 pack polyurethane to withstand exposure to the humid sea salt environ of the Bondi beachfront location.
europanel were able to supply the lighting fabricator with a CAD file weeks before the installation so the linear LED light fittings could be manufactured to the exact curve of the ceiling and seamlessly integrated into the beam installation.
The installation included a custom suspension system that not only needed to support the weight of the beams but the weight of two servicemen to access the mechanical and lighting above the sound mesh via strategically placed gantries.
