Australia’s largest tertiary oral health facility in the inner-Brisbane suburb of Herston, combines natural sophistication with sustainable building materials. Precoated in clear CUTEK® Extreme prior to installation, the beautiful natural hardwood features are injected to add warmth, depth and color.
Blackbutt wood ‘fins’ with a matching staircase handrail make a striking statement in the cutting-edge facility, which was awarded three top spots at the 2016 Queensland Architecture Awards: for Public Architecture, Interior Architecture and Sustainable Architecture.
CUTEK® Extreme enhances the hardwood’s natural beauty by enhancing the subtle differences in grain and color. Further, exposed to UV through tinted glass, CUTEK® Extreme will help to resist the graying effects of the sun for longer. This partnered with the long-term dimensional stability properties of a CUTEK® Extreme will keep the interior wood looking great for a long time to come.
