Deakin dual Occupancy - Private northern courtyard behind courtyard walls western red cedar cladding

Dual occupancy development for ageing in place in National Capital Area in Canberra

The conceptual framework for this dual occupancy in Deakin, directly behind the Prime Minister’s residence, flows from the physical considerations of the corner block location and the client’s requirement for a very livable and “downsized” house.

There was a financial incentive for the client to also act as a developer with the second house going some way to cover the costs of the overall development. The second house was sold to another previous client of TT architecture is prior to completion.

The owners encouraged the Architect to ‘tread boldly’ and was pleased with the ‘on-time, on budget’, sustainable outcome. All associated with the project are justifiably proud of the result.
