Window Association of New Zealand Design Flair Awards

by Administrator 25. June 2014 09:27

Bossley Architect's project Arruba is the national winner for the residential $15,000 - $50,000 catetgory at this years Window Association of New Zealand's annual awards, for the windows developed with Intext Architectural Systems.

The Judges commented;

"For a small project in a tough coastal environment, this definetly has the "wow" factor. With colour changes, canted windows with louvres, skewed roof lights being double glazed units with cranked knee joints, this obviously set some challenges for the manufacturer. Clearly close liason between the key players, the use of shop drawings and custom detailing and flashing was crucial to the success of this vibrant bach."
