Project summary

Step into a residential endeavor that combines timeless charm with contemporary allure. Tucked away in the cul–de–sac of Yarralumla, this residence captures the spirit of Mid–century design while seamlessly integrating indoor and outdoor living.

Central to the architectural vision is a transformative concept: establishing a harmonious connection between the living spaces and the backyard. This vision materialises through the implementation of a split–level design, guiding occupants from the existing house to the garden level.

The dwelling undergoes a metamorphosis, guided by two distinct design narratives. The original segment pays homage to the enigmatic allure of the night, embracing a dark and moody aesthetic. In contrast, the newly added section, strategically oriented towards the backyard, blossoms into a lively celebration of light and colour.

We engaged Jean Architects to redesign our recently purchased old red brick home. We were impressed with Jean’s ability to provide a clear vision of how the home could be transformed with our requirements and lifestyle in mind. Jean’s collaborative communication style, ability to truly listen to what we wanted and problem solving skills were impressive.

From the initial consultation to handing over the keys, Jean Architects are passionate about the homes they design and seeing them through. We love how our home turned out and could not recommend them enough.
