570 St Kilda Road

Designed by Wellard Architects the foyer of 570 St Kilda Road in Melbourne exudes elegance. With sinuous curves and protruding dome profile Click-on Battens, the area is an inviting space to all who enter.

White Oak is the star of the design, with it applied as a Free Standing Timber Screen and also our most popular product,  Timber Click-on Battens.

Dome Profiles

The curves of the White Oak Click-on Battens in dome profiles contrast well with the glossy black tilled feature pillars, which are also domed but on a much larger scale. The different surfaces work well together whilst shining on their own, the glossy black surface provides a striking contrast to the timber and adds interest to the space.

Free Standing Screens

Screens are used throughout the design, linking complementary areas and allowing for easy navigation and visual fluidity.

The screens also break up the heaviness of walls clad with tightly spaced battens, as the increased space between battens allows for a change in pattern and design variation. Domed timber dowels are used as the screen and bring class and elegance to the space, making a great first impression as people first enter.

Curved Walls

The walls surrounding the foyer are curved, encasing the space and providing a sense of intimacy as well as grandeur. Whilst the battens have dome profiles as well, this trend of curves mixes well together. Bang on trend, curves are a winning design choice.
