Project description:  The Latrobe Tower at 323 Latrobe street Melbourne consists of 205 apartments over 42 levels.



The building aesthetic draws from the rich art and music culture, visibly present in the re-claimed lane ways, south of the subject site. This history of music inspires the resulting facades, establishing rhythm and scale as a backdrop to this valuable precinct. 

Altro Building Systems supplied all custom made Euro Cav Ultima cavity sliders and aluminum glazed doors to all apartments. A strong emphasis was on durability and sustainability and Altro cavity sliders were used due to the full aluminium construction. Transfer of light from from room to room was needed and the Altro Vetro doors were used in conjunction with translucent glass infill panels for the spread of natural light. Altro Vetro aluminium doors have been pre machined in our factory for carriages and and bottom floor guides and are specially designed to fit the Euro cavity sliding door system with the advantage of less labour on site.
