Angled Apex Frames

Architect: Hamilton Architects
Contractor: –
Keystone Engineer: Kyle Alexander

The architect liaised with a Keystone engineer who had to take precise measurements onsite to create two very different but equally stunning Angled Apex Frames. The Angled Apex Frame measured 4.8 metres high and 4 metres wide and included fully insulated 180mm box sections. The frames had to be delivered to site in two sections, these were bolted onsite via pre-drilled access holes.

The homeowner wanted to create a feature of not only the lintels used but also on the finishes, deciding on a natural stone finish for the outside of the house. Due to the stone finish Keystone had to include welded gusset plates to carry the stonework on the outer leaf and to resist against sliding.
