The Woody Point Beach House
The owner of Dixon Homes purchased a home in the coastal community of Woody Point, north of Brisbane, with the vision of transforming it into their dream family home. They contacted B&D to help create an aesthetic solution that could also survive the harsh wear and tear of the elements.
Tom Hammond, B&D’s National New Housing Manager recalls “We met on site and discussed how the garage door would have a great presence on the build, accounting for around 60 per cent of the facade of the home.” In this situation the aesthetic bearing the garage door would have on the property was enormous.
Create an integrated cladding sectional garage door system that allows the door itself to disappear into the facade, providing a seamless look to the home while taking into consideration the home’s proximity to the water.
B&D created a customised, five metre wide door with an integrated cladding sectional garage door system. This allows the door itself to disappear into the facade, providing a seamless look to the home.
The design used a Castellated batten material as it features:
- Hard wearing, sustainable resin/timber composite that doesn’t move like timber.
- Less maintence and a lighter weight due to its moulded form.
- Wide range of colours and finishes.
Paired with this clever design is the use of the latest smart technology, allowing secure access control to the home via an app. This Smart Door solution provides the ability to open and close the garage from a mobile smart phone anywhere in the world*.
It also provides monitored access to the garage, sending a message whenever the door is operated or obstructed. Creating the perfect blend of safety, security and convenience.
