For their premium Palmyra apartment complex in Fremantle, WA, Finbar Group required a customised noise wall design to shield residents from the traffic noise of the Leach Highway.
The detailed design brief required a noise wall that delivered:
- An interior wall face that harmonised with the upmarket aesthetics of the apartment complex
- An exterior face that met the urban designer’s creative architectural values
- A height that offered road noise attenuation for the two bottom stories of the building
- Custom foundations to overcome sandy soil and a steep batter slope
ModularWalls delivered a turnkey service with unparalleled customisation from engineering and certification to highly innovative manufacturing and swift installation.
The performance and aesthetic versatility of VogueWall were able to meet every criterion and client expectation comfortably. Measuring up to 2.7m high and delivering an average 25dB noise reduction, VogueWall comfortably achieved the traffic noise attenuation needed.
Furthermore, each side of the noise wall was finished to meet the individual aesthetic requirements. Finally, within the complex, the wall was finished in a neutral palette to complement the clean architectural aesthetics of the building.
Then, the urban designer’s brief required visual texture and variety for the exterior wall face to avoid a static result. A vibrant palette and cascading pattern were used, with striking feature bays showcasing custom artistic moulds made in-house by ModularWalls.
The result is an expertly installed wall noise wall 330m long that was finished within four weeks.
