The flawlessly finished and highly sophisticated Nest at the Hill development is perched neatly on top of Doncaster Hill. Developed by K2LD Architects in conjunction with Crema Constructions, the strong structural presence is highlighted by the use of 1000m2 of our terracotta tile system, Vitracade in “Salmon”, which flows from top-to-bottom creating a warm trail of natural clay tiles against the shimmering glass façade.
With sweeping views of Melbourne CDB and the Dandenong Ranges, the mid-rise building consists of 12 floors and over 250 living spaces. The strength of the Vitracade tiles, as well as the simple fixing system, made this an optimal choice for the elegant design, while also providing warmth and a barrier against outside noise.
Combined with 300m2 of our Vitracore G2 these two façade solutions add a nice finishing touch to the exterior providing natural glamour that will last for decades to come. Installed by Collmill, Vitracade is manufactured from natural clay and then fired in a kiln at over 1000oC, resulting in an entirely non-combustible tile that is tested and proven to AS1530.1. Similarly, Vitracore is our leading deemed to satisfy non-combustible cladding panel, tested to AS1530.1.
