Lighthouse Project Melbourne – Case Study

With a multi-faceted, twisting façade that provides a constant effect of motion from any viewing angle, the stunning Lighthouse Apartments in Melbourne captures the imagination.

This striking project realised the complex design intent of the exterior façade, capturing the effect of the building being a constantly moving object with no corners. Through heavy involvement with the design team from the early stages, HVG Facades were able to create a unique and prominent custom Alucobond PLUS, aluminium composite panel finish that transitions and evolves, complimenting the buildings undulating design.

The eye-catching Alucobond PLUS Spectra Violet finish was created in conjunction with the architectural design team and our long-term partner, 3A Composites, Germany. With a vivid combination of purple, blue and pink tones that create a colourful mosaic that refracts back the surrounding urban environment.

With over 6000sq/m of this spectacular finish being installed by both G. James and Cladding Systems to the external façade, the distinctive Alucobond PLUS Spectra Violet finish has ensured the Lighthouse Apartments create a breath-taking first impression.

With design, development and construction of this landmark project occurring over 5 years, this 69-story residential tower contains 600 apartments and provides Melbourne with an iconic project that is visible from all sides of the city.

Enhancing the reputation as a world leading design, the Lighthouse Apartments development was successful in winning Best Residential High-Rise Development (Australia) at the 2018 Asia Pacific Property Awards and is nominated at the 2018 International Awards to be held in London in December 2018.

HVG Facades are excited to be involved in achieving the design intent of this awe-inspiring building that captures attention across the Melbourne skyline.
