The Project: Valeo Constructions

Year:  2013

Suburb: Hampton


The story:

Valeo Constructions, being one of Melbourne's prolific builders and developers of medium and high density residential and mixed use projects, undertook the construction of this imposing stand-alone contemporary dwelling in Hampton, Melbourne. The design incorporates the use of free form concrete and glass, floating above a structure of river rock. The fence matches the rock facade, finishing this design perfectly.

Evenglide was assigned the task of creating oversize gates to be finished in hardwood timber, with concealed motorisation. The gates are very heavy, tall and must work in tight operating clearances. Behind these gates required a custom configured Roller door across the car lifter, and also the incorporation of further Roller doors in the basement to render the car lifter be closed off during operation.

This project required the pre-installation of specialised and custom manufactured componentry to allow the builder to conceal much of the gate operating equipment. Working with the skilled and experienced team at Valeo allowed this complicated task to be timed perfectly, resulting in an outcome that both Valio and Evenglide were more than pleased with. The stunning contrast of natural timber against the rock, glass and concrete has resulted in the design and execution of a very impressive dwelling.
