Endeavour Joinery have been busy fitting off their cabinetry, including the beautiful entry screen at our Narrabundah House project. Our builders Sutton and Horsley are putting in the final touches including the paved entry and patios, and we have an excited client looking forward to the prospect of moving into their new home!
The Chowne Street House by Philip Leeson Architects was the fortunate recipient of The Gene Willsford Award for Residential Architecture – Houses (Alterations and Additions) on Saturday evening at the 2018 ACT Australian Institute of Architecture awards. The project was also generously awarded The Pamille Berg Award for Art in Architecture, for the artwork by artist Ham Darroch on the rear block work wall. The artwork captures the spirit of the era in which the original house had been constructed, as well as reflecting the contemporary layer of work by Philip Leeson Architects.
The Weston Park Picnic Shelter, which PLA designed in collaboration with Red Box Design Group, was the recipient of the Small Projects Award at the 2018 Australian Institute of Landscape Architect (ACT Chapter) awards last night.
We’re at that moment in a construction project when all the pieces fall into place!

This project in Narrabundah, designed by Philip Leeson Architects, was recently completed by Sutton and Horsley. There are some lovely highlights throughout the build, including the spotted gum Woodform Architectural cladding, generous open planning, and honed block work blade walls inside and out to contrast with the timber.
The women of PLA are varied and many with talents diverse and skill aplenty. We are very proud that women make up 73% of our workplace in various guises – architects, interior designers, graduate architects, architectural assistants and administration roles. We also have very diverse after hours interests – we are artists, designers in our own time, sportswomen, star students (see cameo from Juhani Pallasmaa!), mothers and chicken wranglers!
