Hawker House (extension and renovation) - new two storey midcentury modern extension to Canberra house

House extension of the classic 70s house designed to fit into constraints of existing regulated tree canopy.

This project is in the well-established suburban area of Hawker, Canberra which is characterised by large blocks and inviting vistas to the Brindabella Mountains.

The existing dwelling was a ‘close to the original’ 1970 house and evocative of its era. The original client brief for the house was to consider a new dwelling but from the architects perspective there seemed some value in attempting to retain the existing in part. TT Architecture edged towards an extension and alteration that responded to the existing conditions.
