Double Halo

Located in Earlwood in Sydney, and created by renowned architect Joe Snell, Double Halo House is a design masterpiece: a contemporary ‘forever home’ perched high on a sandstone outcrop. Looking for window coverings that would complement the impeccable style of this home – and provide all-important privacy and thermal control, the design team turned to the team at A’besco. 

On the home’s exterior, they chose to install a range of smart coverings, including a Leiner Sunrain Awning. This awning combines all the advantages of a folding arm awning, with Leiner’s patented Sunrain technology which offers protection from both sun and rain, year round. 

To complete the contemporary exterior, A’besco also recommended Linus horizontal sliding – a very durable aluminium cladding that is invisibly mounted and available in a wide range of colours. This cladding can also run over sliding doors for a seamless and uniform look. Horiso External Venetian Blinds were also used on the outside of this designer home. As well as adding to the sleek and modern look, these blinds reduce solar heat gain, maximise the flow of natural light, and provide essential privacy when needed. The slats also tilt up to 130°, and can fully retract.

Architect Joe Snell was after solutions for his beautiful design to provide the client with privacy, heat protection and aesthetics.
