Windows and framing systems from Capral Aluminium were specified for a new home by Steve Domoney Architects to achieve specific design objectives.

Since the client had children, the project came with a clear vision of a spacious family home, contemporary in line and warm in tone.

Capral AGS windows installed in the dining room open at exterior ground level to a fernery, while the high-level Capral AGS 419 Flushline framing system beyond the kitchen provides views to distant trees in the south-east. The house has been designed to open up generous views to the beautiful outdoors with the formal lounge looking out into a deck and garden behind, and visual connections from every level encouraged by the extensive glazing around the courtyard.

The strong walls to the perimeter of the site provide a sense of security and privacy, while the glazing offers a sense of expansion.

The kitchen has a pivotal role in the interior spaces as a focal place for family meals while also providing clear views throughout the eastern side of the house. Large sections of recycled timber provide support for the inclined glazing that connects the lobby and interior court, and frames for the enormous sliding glass doors.
