The Pole House – The Ultimate Glass Balustrade

5 August 2015

It took more than five years for the renovation, but now one of Australia’s most unique houses has been completed. The stylish facelift was undertaken on the iconic pole house, which was originally constructed in Fairhaven in 1978. It was recently torn down so it could be replaced with a glass and steel structure. The new interiors and retracting glass walls extend from floor to ceiling to take full advantage of the beautiful views from Lorne all the way to Aireys Inlet. A feature wall made from burnt ash timber provides privacy for the bathroom in the structure.

The original architect of the house, Frank Dixon, was at first a little sad that it would be torn down, but the idea of rebuilding and modernising it made him more at ease with the changes. His vision would remain with the creation of the new, renovated building, which is now available for rent. With such amazing views and appeal of such a unique place, it will likely be rented out frequently and thoroughly enjoyed by locals and tourists alike.

Glass balustrades have been used to transform the walkway to the newly completed home, so as visitors approach the house, they feel like they’re walking in the air. A couple of other structures on the property were also torn down, to provide a completely new, fresh look for the house.

Frameless glass balustrade at the front, though, really sets off the property. If you’re looking for the same kind of style for your home, you can get a glass balustrade installed from Aqua Vista Glass, to really set off a particular area of your home.
