With a premium waterfront position at Hobsonville Point on Auckland’s inner harbour, the six-storey Ovation complex needed fencing and balustrades that would enhance such a premier development. The Paladin and Maximus aluminium panels chosen by Studio Pacific Architecture do just that.
Finished in Electro Black Ace, a unique Dulux Duralloy colour, Paladin fencing was installed at a custom height of 700mm along raised garden beds surrounding the ground floor’s private patios. With a seamless look that makes it appear virtually post-free, Paladin brought a minimalist style in keeping with the building’s clean lines.
Both the Paladin and the same-coloured Maximus balustrading – which runs to Ovation’s back stairs and safeguards its balconies – are NZBC F4 compliant for safety and performance. Custom handrails for the access ramps to the front door provide further safety, and the uniform gloss-black finish brings an enduring visual appeal.
