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!
Schouten Constructions are nearing completion on this alterations and additions project in Campbell.
We are really pleased with the new website created specifically for our firm, by Ben Butler (http://beneb.com).

Philip Leeson Architects are very excited to have 2 of our built projects included in the DESIGN Canberra Festival ‘Living Rooms’ program this November.
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!
It’s been a lovely team exercise at this project in the bushland suburb of Aranda, with a wonderful client, her adorable pooches and a builder whose attention to detail is greatly appreciated. Country Builders have been a delight to work with, executing the connection with the existing house beautifully. The external built-in landscaping was designed by Harris Hobbs Landscapes.
Philip Leeson Architects have recently completed a roof deck extension for wonderful clients in Deakin. The project was in collaboration with artist Geoff Farquhar-Still and builder Brett Lentfer, and provides a roof top eyrie from which to enjoy the garden beyond.
