Canberra is a vibrant, diverse and emerging city. When you ask locals to identify some iconic places in Canberra, the places that represent our city’s coming of age story, many will think of local villages like the one in Hughes.
Perched above Kent street, a stone’s throw from one of the iconic Clem Cummings Bus stops is number 193, complete with breeze blocks, original balustrades, and character features, this Canberra Duplex tells a story of the home.
The modernist influence is in keeping with the other mid century homes represented Kent Street. The design delivers light-filled open plan living spaces and sectional geometry seamlessly flowing over two levels. Unpretentious and understated from the outside, screened by courtyards, sliding shutters downstairs and ribbon windows upstairs, the mid-century design effortlessly balances form and function. Flooded with natural light through gorgeous floor to ceiling windows; these stunning design elements have stood the test of time offering a contemporary, functional and significant home.
