Sutton and Horsley are tantalisingly close to practical completion on a new courtyard house designed by Philip Leeson Architects, on a Mr Fluffy site in Curtin, ACT. This project creates a double fronted home with private courtyard spaces within and frontages to both the neighbouring open space as well as the street.
Construction is well underway for a knockdown-rebuild project in the Canberra suburb of Curtin.
Here are a couple of streetscape photos of our recently completed Snorkel House on a sunny Canberran spring morning! There will be more photos to come later in the year of this neat little alterations and additions project for a young family in the inner north.

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!
