San Remo Beach House

San Remo Beach House

Open Windows & Doors


Open Windows & Doors have a strong relationship with Cassari Group since their early days as both companies started their business around the same time. Chindarsi Architects was the selected architect for this project. Chindarsi Architects have a good knowledge and strong affinity with AWS products, specifying from the AWS range of products extensively for their projects.

Located 30m from the shoreline in San Remo, this $2 million redevelopment of this “weekend beach house” needed to maximise the ocean views whilst able to stand up against the brutal storms that would strike during the colder months. Therefore high performance Magnum & Elevate products used were ideal to the requirements, as well as being architecturally aesthetic.

Extensive discussions between Open Windows, the builder, and architect to detail how Series 616, 618, 424, 411 & 704 would be incorporated into the building envelope, including a specification of “no visible fixings’ for frame installations. Many of the frames were recessed into the walls to give the appearance that the feature stone cladding flowed through from inside to outside.

The build was featured in a lifestyle program “Before & After” and Open Windows & Doors were invited to be one of the three featured trades.
