The Brief

Contemporary mixed-use building providing Hotel, Apartment and Commercial Space located within the bustling hub of Braddon, Canberra. 

The Details

Geocon’s Midnight Braddon is Canberra’s latest offering in  high-end Apartment and Hotel luxury. A bold and trendy project expertly designed by Fender Katsalidis Architects situated in an enviable location in our nation’s capital. 

Double glazed windows using the SOLOS KlymetControl® range of Low E Glass are on full display throughout this exclusive and modern building. The glazing forms a key feature of this project, delivering an energy efficient solution with optimal thermal performance. 

The double glazed unit make-up consists of 6mm KlymetShield® Grey, 12mm Argon Gas filled IGU Spacer and 6.38mm EnviroClear®. However, the ground floor make-up varies slightly to allow better visibility into the ground floor tenancies, consisting of 6mm KlymetShield® Clear, 12mm Argon Gas filled IGU Space and 6.38mm EnviroClear®. 

Aptly named Midnight, Geocon have created a vibrant cultural precinct that is ‘made to stay up all night’ dispelling those ‘sleepy’ Canberra ideas once and for all. Comprising high-end residential units, a 199-room hotel and ground, and upper-level commercial space, this mixed-use building is setting the standard for high-end extravagance and liveability.

The inspiration of the design draws on the creative energy of its surrounding neighbourhoods. Formerly an industrial area, Braddon is a suburb tucked into the northern edge of Canberra’s city centre that has undergone a charismatic revolution. 

Taylor’s Window Supplies skillfully completed the extensive supply and installation of the Aluminium Window and Door Systems, installing approximately 9000m2 of SOLOS KlymetControl® Glass. 

In order to meet the energy performance ratings KlymetControl® was selected as the superior insulated glass solution to provide optimum levels of solar control, thermal efficiency and overall energy efficiency.
