If you live in Melbourne, you’ve probably driven by this quirky former motel in the shape of an octagon on Commercial Road in South Yarra.
If you’re not from Melbourne, then you’ve probably seen it on the hit television show, The Block.
Let’s be honest, at first glance it really did seem like the contestants had their work cut out for them. But there was one ace up the sleeve of this outdated mini Melbourne landmark – brilliant views and plenty of access to natural light.
So we knew right away, glass would play a vital role in the renovation. Fortunately, that glass turned out to be our LightBridge™ glass.
Julian Brenchley, the key architect behind The Block, explained the role our glass had to play in this dramatic transition process.
“The benefits of heat retention and low solar gain glass are very obvious. LightBridge™ has thermal properties over and above what you’d expect,” he said.
LightBridge™ maximises the window space possible, helping open up modern homes to natural light and creating a real sense of spaciousness.
