Set on the bustling Maroondah Highway in Melbourne’s outer eastern suburb of Ringwood is the notable Evelyn Ringwood Apartments. The boutique mid-rise development is clad in vertical panels of Stryüm Shadow, providing a modern and sustainable exterior to the mixed-use development.
Consisting of 45 apartments over 6 floors, including 1 level of commercial space, Idle Architecture Studio in conjunction with B Central Constructions have produced a unique gridded façade where the stylish yet simple design of Stryüm Shadow compliments the distinct aluminium window frames and vertical landscape elements. The design also deflects heat and moisture due to the ventilated rainscreen.
The Australian-made, non-combustible aluminium panels were a well-considered design choice that additionally provide a high durability and are easy to maintain. Stryüm was specifically designed by experienced commercial façade professionals to meet the demands of Australia’s construction industry.
