  • Kingston Residence is a generous two storey home at Kingston Foreshore, Canberra. Framed around a central courtyard and double living space, the home includes generous living spaces, a raised glass walkway, timber interiors, bay window and sunny views of Kingston. A composition of brick, concrete, glass and timber, the home is inviting, warm and naturally lit throughout.

    The form of the dwelling is made up of east and west wings (four bedrooms and garage respectively) linked together with a double height open living and mezzanine study area: opening to the central north facing living courtyard. An office with separate street level entry is located over the garage creating a live/work housing model.

    The linear nature of the plan optimises cross ventilation and north aspect to living rooms. The upper floor link, study and covered terrace provide passive surveillance to the street.
