Passing the up close and personal test

Covet Artwood from Japan was recently installed in a new apartment development in Melbourne called Spectrum Apartments - Box Hill. Designed by KUD and developed by Shangyi Property, this building makes a bold, contemporary statement. The designer selected the Covet aluminium cladding system called Ever Artwood from Takasho Japan for the entry lobby. The battens employed were the 2-section ‘Kabebari’ system designed for ease of installation and concealed fixings. The project was pre-cut from shop drawings in Japan and involved over 600 battens. The designers and client were drawn to the fire rating (AS/NZ 3837 - group 1), realistic timber aesthetic, precision and low maintenance aspect of the material.
