Ida Chalet

Winner Excellence in Use of Glass

Designer: Design Unity Pty Ltd Builder: Olsson Building
Photographer: Matthew Mallett Photography Location: Warragul, VIC

The ‘Ida Chalet’ proved to be a worthy winner of ‘Excellence in the Use of Glass’ with the judges, who noted not only the impressive cathedral-style façade, but also the design of the horizontal windows complementing the kitchen/lounge outlook. The level of detail in the angular geometry creates a unique feature that has a dramatic effect from outside and within, generating a striking solution for the clients with a feeling space, whilst producing a design and construction achievement. This project is sleek and sophisticated, with the imaginative use of glass in mind.
