Mont Albert Residence

Stylish New Addition Displaying Elegant Simplicity

Melbourne, Victoria

Through elegant simplicity, this residence offers a stylish new addition to Melbourne’s suburban landscape.

Charged with completely replacing an existing 1950’s property, AMG Architects seized the opportunity to create a modern, unpretentious classic.

The juxtaposition of dramatic architectural features with simple, refined lines provides a space that asserts itself as an individual yet shows great sensitivity to surrounding homes.

A Japanese-inspired gravel courtyard separates the distinct bedroom and living wings, yet creates an interesting link that draws the two elements together and out into the external areas.

This relationship between the home’s elements and the external environment is further enhanced by the floor-to-ceiling Breezway Louvre Windows and fixed glass panels, and clever integration of the outdoor activity spaces into the design. Breezway Louvres up high also help with the circulation of ventilation into the home to keep it cool, reducing the need for artificial air conditioning systems during the warmer months.

AMG Architects’ attention to detail, sensitivity and commitment to artful design is exemplified in this modern nod to suburban living.




Breezway is at the forefront of louvre window technology and design with a constant stream of product improvements. The R&D team facilities include advanced 3D modelling CAD software, on-site tooling and manufacturing facilities and an on-site NATA (National Association of Testing Authorities) approved window testing laboratory that allows new products to be tested and refined to have the best performance possible before being launched into the market. As a result, the team has developed many louvre window innovations which now hold international patents, including the award-winning Powerlouvre Window.

Breezeway’s Altair Louvre Window is available from window and door manufacturers across Australia.  The Altair Louvre has been designed to be compatible with most timber and aluminium windows.
