Designer Notes: Narrabundah House.

This architecturally inspired residential home is located in a small suburb of the ACT called Narrabundah. The surrounding leafy mature trees and vast bushland are the backdrop for this amazing project.

Adam Dettrick Architects were chosen to design this home. The brief was to create an open plan living space for the home, whilst maintaining privacy in the bedroom and bathrooms. The clients required a home that accommodated for entertaining as well as being able to be easily closed in for privatisation.

Adam Dettrick worked closely with highly experienced local window and door manufacturer Monaro Windows, to ensure a perfect window and door solution for this home. ThermalHEART™ Series 731 sliding doors were used to the back of the property to open up the indoor living spaces to the backyard. The ThermalHEART™ thermally broken aluminium systems allowed for large openings to be created, whilst not taking away from the energy efficiency of this home located in an extreme climate.

ThermalHEART™ Series 726 thermally broken aluminium awning windows were used on top of the ThermalHEART™ thermally broken Series 731 sliding doors to ensure cross ventilation throughout the home.

This project has gone on to win the 2014 ACT Architecture Awards for Residential Architecture – Houses (New).
