Far-reaching sea views don’t come much better than these from the spacious balconies of a new luxury apartment development on the South Coast. Making the most of the panoramic vistas are more than 100 metres of glass balustrading supplied by Balconette for Azure, an exclusive development of two and three-bedroom seafront residences in the coastal village of Rottingdean.

Constructed to a high specification by Generator Developments, the building takes inspiration from the elegant, simple lines of Art Deco design referencing the architectural heritage of the area, but reworked in a contemporary style. Designed on a series of striking horizontal layers, the balconies are staggered to maintain privacy and help the modern architecture blend with its cliff top setting. “You could say glass balustrading was made for this impressive view and superb location,” comments Graham Blackford, Project Manager at the Generator Group. “The Balconette product complements the exterior perfectly, with clear glass ensuring an unobstructed view from the balconies spanning the width of the apartments. As an eye-catching feature of the building, the balconies also provide great entertaining and relaxation space for residents.”

Local estate agents Tina Templeman, branch director of Mishon Mackay Rottingdean and David Webb of David Webb Residential agree that the glass balconies are a key draw for prospective purchasers, providing the perfect place from which to enjoy the endlessly changing vista. Says David, of David Webb Residential: “Clients have commented how they fit in perfectly with the style of the apartments and the fact that they require very little maintenance is a huge advantage. The clifftop setting is increasingly rare and offers a unique opportunity to live in a prime seafront location.”

Julie Frith, director of Mishon Mackay New Homes adds: “The glass balconies really enhance the building and set the Azure development apart from the rest.” Balconette’s proven glass and aluminium balustrading systems are an ideal choice for ‘tougher environments’, such as seaside locations. Requiring minimal maintenance, their superior corrosion-resistance can better withstand the rigours of salty sea air compared to alternative materials.
