Rodd House, Yarralumla

A new family home on an elevated corner site overlooking a reserve to the west and wide street to the north.

The house is arranged in two separate wings linked by the entry lobby. The layout exploits the natural qualities of the site with living rooms facing north and bedrooms west. The living rooms have high ceilings and clerestory windows filling the space with natural light. The bedrooms face west to the reserve and are protected from summer sun by deep set eaves and adjustable screens.
