Builder Tru-Form Construction worked closely with well-known window and door fabricator, Windows by Design to achieve the desired design outcomes for a house in Williamstown, Melbourne.

Located on MacLean Street, Williamstown at the mouth of the Yarra River, south-west of the Melbourne city centre, this beautiful house is testament to the fact that it takes teamwork to achieve great results from concept through to design and execution as well as choice of products and materials.

The client sought a luxurious two-bedroom home designed with a hotel-feel and featuring a seamless flow between the interior and exterior spaces. To achieve this, the sills were recessed into the polished concrete slab to create an indoor/outdoor area between the modern kitchen, courtyard and living rooms on the ground floor.

Since the property was not expansive, the architect, Bojan Simic Architecture needed to be creative to ensure the residents enjoyed a sense of spaciousness and had room to breathe. Glazing was used on a massive scale on the home’s exterior to maximise and extend the line of sight and give the occupants a sense of connection to the outside world. The clever placement of windows and doors ensured privacy for the residents from the street and neighbouring properties.

Elevate doors and windows from Architectural Window Systems were specified for several reasons including their architectural style, quality of product, and value for money. The builder was also allowed to use large sliding doors and expansive double-glazed fixed panels.

The stylish MacLean Street property combines great design with exceptional workmanship and products to achieve a truly wonderful family home in which space, privacy and flow are perfectly balanced.

Both the client and the architect were happy with the results and the project was even submitted for a 2015 Master Builders Association Victoria (MBAV) Award.
