Foxfire Louvre Solves Fire Hazard for Top Architect


In the ever more busy downtown of South Yarra, a hub of residential high-rises has been emerging over the past 10 years. Lucia Apartments, a stunning new gem in the local vicinity, was designed by an architect that has left his mark on Melbourne with countless developments, the architectural practice of Elenberg Fraser. In an attempt to squeeze two 20 story apartment towers in the very tight lot there was no choice but to reduce the setbacks from the normal deed from the property, so a sanctuary of space between the towers could be created for the residents to enjoy in their time off from their busy lives. Although this caused significantly more space, it created a potential fire hazard for potential future properties.

Foxfire Louvres were engaged by LU Simon Builders to implement the isolation from fires spreading. Having had significant experience from many other buildings to draw upon, Foxfire came up with a solution that was both cost-effective and stunning to look at, as well as delivered and installed it all within the project plan. The Operable Glazed Louvres (GG BT 60) through the corridors added an additional feature to the facade.

Products Used: GG BT 60 (Single Glazed Operable Glass Louvre), 140 x STG LM2 Actuators, 42 x WAL Actuators, 30 x Digital Control Systems.
