A family home of grand proportions, built on a large property in Higgovale. The designer’s concept was a European style slim steel frame to maximise views available from the site and to lend a light industrial feeling to the house. Integrity of materials was important to the designer and generally the finishes in the house suggest this as a unifying concept throughout.

Metal windows custom designed hinged and sliding versions of similarly configured doors and sidelight panels. FORMAN Brand products, superior quality products were used throughout the house.

In the steel sliding door panels a hybrid system of draught exclusion was specially developed for this house. The new draught excluding system was developed by Larry Forman and his technical team borrowing lessons learned from the Aluminium Window and Door fabrication they have done for so many years. The result is fantastic with all the benefits of a well sealed aluminium sliding door and the slim line steel framing in one product!

The stacking of massive small pane fixed windows above large format steel doors really delivers a great sense of open space, light and volume, in the atrium which forms the central core and grand entrance to this family home.
