The exact glass make up was 8mm LoE-366 clear / 12 Argon / 8mm clear, amounting to rather solid units that had to be craned in on site but the end result has made it all worth while.

When the beach is quite literally in your backyard it would be rude not to take full advantage of the view. And thanks to the most advanced low-E product on the market, LoE3-366®, this was made possible – without unsightly overhangs or permanent tints to block the sun during its hottest hours.

When the owner embarked on this 770m2 build on the foreshore of Sorrento, Mornington Peninsula, his brief was rather simple – a bright and modern home with a view from every room. A vision which architect, Robert Simeoni has abundantly delivered, engaging SMA Projects as the builders to bring this project to life.

Surrounded by greenery and backing onto the foreshore, the external of the building includes a combination of custom timber – hand cut on site – and an almost entirely glass facade using Glassworks’ LoE3-366 double glazed IGUs, installed by LBA Joinery. Having the blinds up whenever he’s home (even on the hottest days) the owner can’t believe he hasn’t needed the air-conditioning yet and is delighted with the noise control.

Best of all, the clarity of the glass means that the breathtaking beach views and beautiful landscaping by Tract Consultants can be enjoyed from the inside. And the interior made up of timber, stone and travertine – designed by Lombard & Jack – can be admired from the outside. Not to mention superior fade protection for the luxurious and contemporary Space furniture, as the LoE-366 blocks the UV, a leading cause of fading.

The exact glass make up was 8mm LoE-366 clear / 12 Argon / 8mm clear, amounting to rather solid units that had to be craned in on site but the end result has made it all worth while.

A special mention to structural engineers, Nader Consulting, building surveyor, Phillip Chun, and town planners, SJB Planning who also made this project possible.
