Construction is well underway for a knockdown-rebuild project in the Canberra suburb of Curtin.
This country cottage project with a modern twist is starting to take shape in Hall, as the framing goes up and early spring shadows filter in. High ceilings with double height spaces and a bold monolithic form with great northern sun externally characterise the design. We’ll keep you posted as construction progresses on site!
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!
Schouten Constructions are nearing completion on this alterations and additions project in Campbell.
