Tenor Apartments - Auckland

Tenor Apartments – superbly situated in Library Lane, the hub of Albany where residents of the forty one apartments enjoy easy access to the nearby shops, restaurants and beaches, while only being a short drive to the city. The project is expertly designed and constructed with a minimalistic look that is so commonly sought after on inner-city apartments nowadays.

It was here that the Unex “post-less” balustrade was born. Unex was approached by JWA to assist with the key requirement of designing a balustrade with a ‘continuous line of thin, upright, structural and equal-sized supports’ to provide that minimalistic look. It also had to accommodate the large sliding and moveable privacy screens.

Using its team of engineers experienced in balustrade design, Unex was able to turn the vision of JWA Architects into a reality! Essentially a series of vertical fins, the post-less baluster solution comprises of vertical 40 x 12mm posts, a slim 50 x 16mm top rail, but no bulky structural “post” as is found on many traditional balustrades. Unex completed all site-specific engineering and compliance documentation to meet the New Zealand Building Code and time frames of this project.
