Style and durability in North Melbourne
The sophisticated North Apartments complex offers more than 450 residences across 20 storeys. Located in hip North Melbourne, the building is only a short stroll from the CBD and the University of Melbourne.
The walls and soffits of North Apartments large balconies needed an attractive timber-look cladding to match the building’s chic design and location. But the facade also had to stand up to Melbourne’s harsh weather, which ranges from 45°C days in summer to driving wind and rain in winter.
Euro Selekta was the obvious choice. Laboratory-tested for extreme climatic conditions, the pre-finished composite cladding is water- and pest-resistant and requires no ongoing maintenance, making it ideal for this classy inner-city high-rise.
The warm cedar finish provides a stunning contrast with the apartment building’s dark glass. And thanks to Euro Selekta’s extreme durability, North Apartments balconies will be turning heads for decades to come.
