Case Study: Aria Apartments

MATERIALS: Finesse Boulevard™
ARCHITECT: Loucas Zahos Architects

The Project

Located in the heart of Adelaide’s buzzing restaurant district, the $36 million Aria Apartments development on Gouger Street is one of the CBD’s newest and most exclusive residential addresses.

Constructed throughout 2014 and completed mid-2015, the 12-storey complex features 93 modern one, two and three bedroom apartments positioned around a central atrium, with significant retail and restaurant space on the street level.

Fielders was contracted in partnership with Alien Roofing to provide the contemporary Finesse Boulevard™ exterior cladding as the façade of the cutting edge building, with the material lining the base levels of the building.


The Solution

Fielders Finesse Boulevard™ was chosen by architects, Loucas Zahos, due to its ability to provide a clean and modern finish to the lower exterior of the building. The flat recessed joint of the material was essential in creating a smooth effect that harmonised with the blue-tinted glass façade of the upper levels.

The Process

The Boulevard™ profile was amongst the final additions to the apartment complex and was installed in early 2015 by Alien Roofing. The material was delivered to site and applied to the exterior of the building over the course of an eight week installation time.

Fielders Finesse

Fielders Finesse consists of five versatile profiles that have been designed to bring a high end look to the roof and walls of projects across Australia. Consisting of Boulevard™, Prominence™, Shadowline® 305, Neo Roman™ and Grandeur™, each façade profile has a unique aesthetic appeal that adds the finishing touch to commercial and residential buildings alike. Easy to design, easy to install and a cost effective solution, Finesse has earned its reputation as one of Australia’s leading exterior cladding options that can be tailored to any project requirement.
