This exciting new landmark building has been designed by the award-winning team at Athfield Architects – the creative genius behind other notable buildings in the capital like the Wellington City Library. The developer is Willis Bond, the principal contractor is LT McGuiness.
The project design brief specified that the building maintained an uncluttered, neat, consistent visual appearance when viewed from the outside. The client did not want an assortment of different curtains and blinds detracting from the building's sleek external appeal.
Working closely with the architectural team, Luxaflex® suggested the clean contemporary look of Sunscreen Roller Blinds which were then chosen for the fit-out of the complex's first showcase apartment. Aesthetically, Sunscreen Roller Blinds have a smart low-profile design, plus they deliver a host of benefits with their light-diffusing characteristics. By filtering the sunlight through the weave of their specialised fabric, they create a natural, restful interior ambience in the living rooms. The unique properties of the Luxaflex® Sunscreen fabrics significantly reduce the sun's heat, the damaging effects of UV radiation and bright glare spots whilst maintaining clear views of the wonderful Wellington city vistas outside. Blockout Rollershades provided complete privacy for the bedrooms.
Impressed by their understated good looks, durability and performance, Luxaflex® Roller Blinds have subsequently been installed throughout Chews Lane's 11 floors in 60 of the apartments purchased to date.
