Project summary

**Un Peu Perrault is a Testament to Light Touch Architectural Transformation**

Un Peu Perrault, by MyMyMy Architecture, stands as a testament to the transformative power of sensitive light touch architecture to enhance family connections and elevate daily life. Carefully balancing preservation of the original building fabric with the integration of a bright, inviting extension, the project caters to the evolving needs of the family.

Seamlessly blending innovation with functionality, MyMyMy Architecture’s design fosters moments of tranquillity and familial joy through meticulous attention to detail. Key features include a zigzag folded and perforated steel screen, which redefines street presence, and strategic apertures that infuse interiors with warmth.

This new addition by MyMyMy Architecture is an exercise in restraint. Un Peu Perrault serves as a symbol of architectural metamorphosis, seamlessly melding interior comfort with exterior aesthetics.

Un Peu Perrault is situated in Downer, ACT, on the land of the Ngunnawal people.

We loved our old house’s traditional Canberra red brick style however its age and impracticalities were showing. The new layout reinvents the internal space with a small extension that combines harmoniously with the old while creating something new.

We now have bedrooms all with voluminous storage for our children and a spacious master with calm inducing ensuite, a kitchen that is a pleasure to work in, inviting living spaces, enough bathrooms for all contained in a light filled, airy and thermally comfortable package. Additionally, these spaces are a dream to live in, having a sense of individuality, beauty, and comfort.
