Toughened glass from Bent and Curved Glass was used for a unique swimming pool designed by Molnar Freeman Architects as a key feature in the expansion of a hotel on the south coast of NSW. The cantilevered pool end that floats above the entry to Bannisters Pavilion in Mollymook Beach provides a memorable experience for hotel guests. Frameless glass panels reveal the movement and sparkle of the water, catching the eye.
Bent and Curved Glass (BCG) worked closely with the architects, the engineer (Wirrawonga Consulting) and the installation contractor (Ozea Group) to determine the feasibility of the desired glazing solution. BCG bent four layers of 12 mm toughened glass as a matched set, to the dimensional tolerances required for successful lamination. The largest panel weighs 519 kg. bentglass.com.au
