Two storey solar passive house design for inner city Canberra family.

Chifley, ACT
- Under Construction -
This modern 230 square meter house for a Canberran couple and their two children is located on a leafy residential block looking North over the Woden Valley in the established suburb of Chifley. The two-story house has three bedrooms all with ensuites, a theatre room, an open kitchen with a glazed double height living & dining area that opens onto a deck and alfresco area. The simple rectangular footprint and modern look contrast the surrounding brick veneer houses from the 70s and offers a fresh, sustainable approach to modern residential living. The northern eave overhang allow the double height thermally efficient glass facade to shade the summer sun and let winter sun penetrate to the insulated thermal mass held in the reverse brick veneer walls and concrete slab. The upper floor allows views above the Woden tree canopy all the way to the City.
