Project summary

Guided by social and sustainable values, Well–Connected is an exemplary demonstration in the careful integration of new areas and refinement of existing spaces to deliver a greatly improved, yet modest home which significantly enhances the quality of life for its young family within.

Newly defined spaces serve as hubs for social interaction, enriching the lives of the owners as they occupy different areas of the home. The incorporation of passive design principles and attention to detail enhances thermal efficiency and elevates comfort levels well beyond standard requirements.

Values of sustainability and social connection are prioritised, while moments of architectural delight provide further validity to the investment of this project. Well–Connected stands as a testament to the possibilities of sustainable and social values led design – promising years of enjoyment and fulfillment for its occupants ahead.

This design has transformed our daily lives in profound ways.

The extension has seamlessly integrated with our existing home, and has given a new rhythm to our family life. It’s three spaces within one, meaning we can be doing quite different things while still being together.

The abundant natural light flooding through this space brings a refreshing vibrancy, and always brightens our day. Additionally, the design has significantly improved energy efficiency, aligning with our commitment to sustainability and allowing us to remain comfortable through the vagaries of the Canberra climate.
