1 Denison, North Sydney

More than just an office building, 1 Denison is a landmark of Sydney’s new North Shore. In addition to being the home of Australia’s iconic Channel 9 Network, 1 Denison houses rotating and permanent art exhibitions, quality dining, and much more. North Sydney’s tallest commercial building, 1 Denison is defined by spacious, natural light-filled workspaces and highly permeable structures that promote openness and connectivity. Altro supplied 3,391 lineal meters of shadow line skirting to create entryways that seamlessly blend with and accentuate the building’s graceful, minimalist design.


The Ribbon, Sydney

Helmed by the internationally acclaimed architects at Hassell, the Ribbon is poised to transform Sydney’s Darling Harbour. Named for its striking contours, the Ribbon will host the new state of the art IMAX theatre as well as an eclectic array of retail stores and a truly one of a kind hotel. Altro were selected by the architects to supply a number of sliding door systems, including wall mounted sliding doors and the Euro Cav Ultima Euro Sliding Door System. Measuring 90 meters in height and situated in one of Sydney and Australia’s most recognised and beloved urban districts, the Ribbon represents an exciting milestone, both for Altro and for the city of Sydney.


West Side Place, Melbourne

Situated at the heart of Melbourne’s urban centre, West Side Place will be the CBD’s largest residential development. Comprising 2,600 luxury residential apartments, abundant public gardens and leisure spaces and Melbourne’s first Ritz-Carlton Hotel alongside an expansive retail precinct, West Side Place will set a new standard for inner city living in Melbourne. The architects chose Altro to furnish the apartments with Euro Cavity sliding doors and Euro Jambs with Shadow Line finish.


Premier Tower

Currently under construction on the corner of Bourke and Spencer Streets in central Melbourne and set to be completed in late 2021, Premier Tower is already redefining Melbourne’s skyline. Premier Tower is distinguished by an innovative profile, with the architects taking their inspiration from human movement and particularly from the music video for Beyoncé’s Ghost. Intended for a mix of uses including commercial and residential spaces, upon completion, Premier Tower will be one of the tallest structures anywhere in the city of Melbourne. Altro were chosen by the architects to provide sliding doors throughout the building. Our Euro Cav Cavity Sliders will create the perfect blend of elegance and functionality, offering unique entryways that maximise space and promote free-flowing movement.
