Highly customised VogueWall® noise wall design for Finbar Group’s Palmyra Apartments
22 October 2019
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
From engineering and certification, to highly innovative manufacture, to swift installation, ModularWalls was able to deliver a turnkey service with an unparalleled level of customisation.
The performance and aesthetic versatility of VogueWall was able to comfortable meet every criterion and client expectation. 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 able to be finished to meet the separate aesthetic requirements. Within the complex, the wall was finished in a neutral palette to complement the clean architectural aesthetics of the building.
For the exterior wall face, the urban designer’s brief required visual texture and variety to avoid a static result. As such, a vibrant palette and cascading pattern was used, with striking feature bays showcasing custom artistic moulds, made in-house by ModularWalls.
Running a total length of 330m, the entire noise wall was expertly installed and finished within a rapid 4-week period.
