Our entries in the 2019 architecture awards
Three of our recent designs have been nominated in the 2019 ACT Institute of Architecture awards.
The Bolt On Tree House
Category: Alterations & Additions
This 1960s home was designed by renowned architect Dirk Bolt. The owners wanted to extend the home in a way that respected the original architecture.
A major obstacle to extending was the block itself, with its steep, almost cliff-like drop-off. We solved these problems with an innovative solution: ‘bolting-on’ an extension over the driveway, creating an instant carport below, and a tree-house feel above with beautiful views of foliage in all directions.
Blue Heeler House
Category: New home
This project was a balance between optimizing northern solar gain and providing screening from the street and oval. The home has a clearly defined and friendly street frontage while creating private family spaces and excellent connection to the large backyard to the south.
Internally a very light and neutral palette and minimalist, semi-industrial style creates a strong sense of calm and spaciousness.
Category: New Home
The Gingerbrick House is a colourful, multi-levelled home that has been designed to function for residents in various stages of family life; young involved children, a family with teenage children, empty nesting with possible rental of a zoned-off section, and old age.
This house explores sustainability through creative and collaborative design, respects its site and community and reflects the buoyant, intelligent personalities that thrive within.
