A premium high-rise apartment project in the Australian city of Brisbane was able to achieve a stunning finish using a composite timber cladding product from Urbanline Architectural.
The Australian company’s Euro Selekta Clad was chosen for ‘The Highgate’, an iconic multi-level apartment complex in Brisbane’s inner city featuring 42 exquisite three-bedroom and penthouse residences, all with panoramic city views. The developer’s goal was to create an award-winning building that made the most of the incredible view.
Recommended as an excellent cladding choice for high-rise apartments, Urbanline’s composite product combines a stunning appearance with practical benefits. The Euro Selekta Clad was specified for The Highgate for its natural timber looks and compelling advantages, including easy installation, appropriate fire rating and zero maintenance.
Euro Selekta Clad in silver oak was used for the soffits on all balconies as well as the pool deck. The choice of this product for these high-exposure areas was appropriate as the material will not rot, split or warp.
A pre-finished composite cladding facade with a timber-embossed surface, Euro Selekta Clad allows architects and developers to achieve the premium, warm look of wood without the maintenance and upkeep concerns that come with the real thing.
Unlike timber, which can weather easily, Euro Selekta Clad is designed for maximum durability with eco-friendly, water-resistant and lightweight characteristics as well as a high Rw acoustic rating and assured longevity. Delivering high-impact looks, the composite timber cladding is available in a wide range of colours, including cedar, white birch and African ebony.
