This designer beach house overlooking Whale Beach takes advantage of extensive glass to make the most of its breathtaking view, using an innovative low maintenance approach to protect the exterior from salt spray, as well as from the elements
Glass has been used in construction for approximately 2000 years, and in the last few decades, the use of glass in buildings has increased remarkably. The trend towards eco-friendly materials and open plan living has made glass a very popular choice for residential construction, helped by advancements in glass coatings for a low maintenance glass care process.
The EnduroShield coating is the finishing touch in the form of an applied treatment that enhances the performance of the glass. The advantages of EnduroShield can be utilized for so many glass applications around the home from exterior windows to shower screens.
This designer beach house overlooking Whale Beach, located in one the most exclusive coastal suburbs of northern Sydney, has been constructed to make the most of its seaside aspect. EnduroShield easy clean treatment for glass was professionally applied to the interior and exterior of the building, and pool surround – allowing for low maintenance glass care. The home has been designed with extensive use of frameless glass panels to optimize the view, allowing clear sight lines through to the stunning infinity pool and the beach beyond.
As the home is just metres away from the sea, all of the glazed areas were treated by EnduroShield to reduce the build-up of salt caused by constant ocean spray. The protective coating seals the porosity of the glass helping to prevent permanent staining from salt spray. The professional treatment will reduce the cost and effort of cleaning. Environmental benefits can also be taken into account as areas treated with EnduroShield require less water and no toxic chemicals for cleaning compared to untreated glass.
