FGR Architects delivers contemporary family haven to Ascot Vale

FGR Architects as Architects

A family home with large open spaces was the core consideration of the client brief for Bloomfield. Designed by FGR Architects, natural light, simple materials, space and height have all been cleverly incorporated to allow a family to entertain and grow into.

Upon arrival, visitors are welcomed by an understated angular façade of the contemporary home that sits proudly amongst the streetscapes of Ascot Vale. Consisting of striking concrete and large glass panels, the eye is immediately drawn to the raw beauty of these materials, all of which are protected by a strong, black, extended screen placed neatly on the street front.

The home itself is located on a linear laneway, creating a unique journey to arrive at the entrance. The experience of moving through a sheltered corridor before finally reaching the entry point allows for a complete experience before even stepping foot inside. The simplistic beauty of the two-storey home continues into the expansive interior. The feeling of an outdoor garden is expertly brought into the space through cascading greenery combined with soaring heights and a steel staircase, all delicately contrasted against a warm timber ceiling.

The heart of the home is clearly evident, with a large living space providing strategic connection to almost everywhere else in the house. It is a mutual place for interaction
