On a tree-lined street in one of Canberra’s busiest boroughs, on a corner block with rounded boundaries, sits a thoughtfully designed family home with love and stability at its core

Project Details

Location: Suburb, ACT

Lead Architect: Andrew Collins

Completion: 2023

Builder: Prostyle Building Group

Prompted by a mid-career move from Melbourne, the young family of five (plus dog) were looking for a house that was uniquely theirs, and a space they felt they had lived in forever. The design of the house reflects the warm, close-knit values of the family, giving Kate, Alex and their three children light, airy spaces to come together. 

We wanted to achieve 3 things with this house: affordability, light and connection to landscape. We love how the whole house is organised around the central courtyard, to be fully connected to the site is wonderful!
