The Naked Architect | Season 1 Episode 1 Ballantyne Street

PROJECT: BALLANTYNE STREET

ARCHITECT: FOOMAN ARCHITECTS

SESSION TOPIC: THE IDEAL CLIENT

EPISODE LENGTH: 33 MINS

Jo Foong and Jamie Sormann formed the practice in 2008. The Foomann team work on projects in residential, hospitality, interior, retail and office design with a wide range of budgets. This broad experience has introduced the practice to a committed team of excellent building professionals and craftspeople. With a family of 5 and 2 sets of interstate grandparents, the residence of Ballantyne Street outgrew their existing three bedroom one bathroom home. Along with the requirement to extend came a desire to do so in a responsible way. This resonated strongly with Fooman with every decision weighing up cost, longevity and environmental impact. The clients wanted the house to feel inviting and connected to their garden. These principals underpin a robust, lean yet generous and refined home that embraces the outdoors.

The Naked Architect is an initiative of Open House Melbourne, with support from the Architects Registration Board of Victoria, and in association with ArchiTeam. The Series was launched in 2017 as part of the year-round program of Open House.
