Athleen Avenue

This steep site in Lenah Valley presented our team with a challenge from which some creative solutions blossomed.

A collaborative effort between Skookom, Peter Liddington of Liddington Architects and the owners Aimee and George, this elegant 3 bedroom 2 bathroom home focussed on clever use of space, a low impact footprint and energy efficiency.

Capturing all day sun and emphasising the use of natural light whist capturing spectacular views of the surrounding valley, Skookom’s typical attention to detail has been foregrounded in this design, not only in the finishing but also within the structure.

In our client’s words

We couldn’t be more impressed and pleased with the service and outcome Skookom provided. They supported us in achieving a design that was build-able for our sloping site and helped us get the important sustainability elements into our build within our budget. We always hear people say that the construction phase of building a house is highly stressful. That was not our experience with Skookom - they were attentive, reliable, honest and completed our house in a highly efficient timeframe. The house they built for us is such a high quality and has exceeded our expectations. We couldn’t recommend them more highly.

This translates well when standing in the home, the comfort level is a direct result of the superior quality of the insulation installation and use of top tier building wrap which allows the building to breath while maintaining a consistent temperature and allowing efficient heating and cooling.

Coupled with a refined interior design, this build exudes a sense of security, comfort and belonging. A beautiful mix of cutting-edge building techniques, attention to detail, care, and an efficient approach to energy performance.
