Meridian Tower required a dual-purpose wall to serve as a pool privacy wall and a striking front feature wall with a luxe sandstone finish. With its high level of aesthetic and applicational versatility, VogueWall perfectly fit the bill.
Meridian Tower in Kirra Beach, QLD, is a 4.5-star beachfront accommodation that boasts stunning oceanic views and a vast array of resort life splendours. When guests are not enjoying the sprawling coast just moments away, they seek the relaxing atmosphere of the pool area.
Therefore, Meridian Tower’s pool wall needed to meet two specific yet very separate design briefs. Firstly, they needed a pool boundary to create a secure, private swimming oasis for guests, despite its proximity to the main road. Secondly, the exterior face of the wall needed a premium aesthetic to make a grand first impression of the hotel’s front entrance.
Pool boundary wall
One of the most important design principles of landscape architecture is the essence of enclosure. To create a private, secure outdoor space, we rely on a sense of boundaries, which is what VogueWall delivers.
The 37m VogueWall boundary wall protects the security and privacy of guests. In addition, the sophisticated aesthetics effortlessly uphold the hotel’s premium architectural values without creating an overbearing or imposing structure. Finally, its smooth finish removes any risk of climbable zones ensuring compliance with pool fence regulations.
Road noise barrier
Visual privacy was not the only priority for this pool oasis. It was also imperative that the barrier wall protect guests’ acoustic privacy. Tested by the National Laboratory of Australia, ModularWalls’ products achieve a typical noise reduction of ~20-25dB. As a result, the VogueWall protects the acoustic privacy of guests, limits noise made by guests, and serves as a practical road noise barrier preserving the serenity of Meridian Tower’s pool area.
Front feature wall
Last but certainly not least, the unique sandstone finish along the exterior face creates an exquisite front entrance for the hotel.
The creative genius and high calibre installation skills of the ModularWalls recommended Trade Partner ensured an expert finish to the sandstone cladding. Furthermore, compared to a sandstone block wall, the client saved a substantial amount by choosing a modular masonry alternative.
With soft landscaping and a sandstone retaining wall, the final wall design achieves a clean, modern, natural aesthetic.
