The Apollo Joinery Group produces high quality, unique joinery on a large scale to meet the needs of all market segments from high rise developers, retail and corporate fit-outs to project home builders. Utilising the very latest in manufacturing technology and software, Apollo Joinery Group has won accolades for their consistent delivery of innovative design and exceptional craftsmanship, backed by first class service.
Apollo Joinery Group has completed an extensive project at the Sekisui House development The Sanctuary, in Wentworth Point on Sydney’s Parramatta River. The Sanctuary is set to be one of Sekisui House’s most celebrated Australian residential developments.
A fully planned estate which puts family, community and the environment at the heart of its experience, The Sanctuary is a harmonious blend of Japanese design principles and Australian identity that connects people to their surroundings.
Apollo Joinery Group manufactured, delivered and installed kitchens and cabinetry to over 360 apartments across four buildings. The comprehensive contract included vanities and shaving cabinets, laundry joinery, TV units and pantry storage.
The kitchens offer two colour schemes using Polytec ‛Maison Oak’ Ravine and Polytec ‛Estella Oak’ Woodmatt. The shadow line is Polytec Black ‘Venette’ finish for consistency. Drawers and cupboards were supplied with sharknose finger pull for lower units and overhang finger pull for overhead cupboards. Metal recessed handles were used on storage cabinetry.
Quality drawers were installed using Apollo Kitchens branded Hettich Silver Innotech soft close systems to ensure residents enjoy smooth drawer action, durability and impressive stability for many years to come.
Bathrooms had similar finishes to the kitchens. The benchtop supporting shelf was manufactured in ‛Maison Oak’ Ravine finish with concealed brackets. The shaving cupboard doors were finished with 4mm silver backed glass. Doors on the laundry cabinetry and the TV units also followed the design formula of Polytec ‛Maison Oak’.

Apollo Joinery Group also fitted out the common areas where kitchenettes and bookshelves were finished in Polytec Ravine.
The design team was engaged early in the building programme to design the structure of the curved kitchen benchtop with timber slats which is a feature of The Sanctuary apartments.
“Being engaged early on this project gave my team the chance to consult and bring the project to life, through being functional and cost effective,” said Owner and Managing Director, Peter Bader. “We are equipped with the very latest in design software and machinery, plus skilled craftspeople, to design and produce the volume of kitchens and cabinetry required for projects similar to the scale ofThe Sanctuary. We can meet the highest specifications required by our clients.”
The tight timetable on the project was challenging but the Apollo Joinery Group was very familiar with project requirements on high rise developments and was equipped to deal with them. “Parkview, managing the construction of The Sanctuary, had a very well organised job site which helped considerably and we enjoyed working with them. We are also very comfortable in Wentworth Point, having completed four projects – Savannah, Jewel, Taiga and Billbergia’s Marina Square,” said Peter.
Apollo Joinery Group has the well known Apollo Kitchens under its corporate umbrella as well as Apollo Stairs and has developed the inhouse capability to design and produce complete fixed joinery solutions, becoming the supplier of choice for leading builders and developers. “We have the capacity and the skills to meet a new generation of projects,” Peter said.
