NEW ACTON NISHI

Located in Australia’s capital, Canberra, New Acton Nishi is a Japanese inspired design. Nishi is the third phase of the New Acton East and New Acton South mixed-use development that has  already won a number of prestigious awards for sustainability, innovation and design. Nishi has a focus on attaining 8-star Nathers energy rating across its residential tenancies. The timber specified is the hardwood Queensland Blackbutt.  It has a strong visual appeal and impressive durability qualities. To help achieve uniform weathering, a Lanotec coating has been applied to the more than 42 kilometres of timber material used in the façade sunshades.
