NGJANathan Gibson Judd Architect are a boutique inner city Canberra Architecture practice located in Lonsdale St, Braddon. They regularly feature in national design magazines, newspapers and in print publication. Their practice is the recipient of several design awards, including the prestigious Malcolm Moir and Heather Sutherland award, Residential Architecture – Houses.

Their design for Block 5 reflects a new typology for Canberra, with terraces presenting a split level to the street. This provides aspect and surveillance to the street, and creates an urban sense of community and safety. This is complete with stoops for sitting and providing a default urban furniture for incidental occupation. Their key goal is to ensure Block 5 feels like its own precinct, distinct from the developments on each side through the use of intricacy and layering.


Marchese PartnersMarchese Partners are an Australian-based international firm that delivers leading edge master planning, architecture, interior design and engineering right across the full spectrum of ‘lifestyle living’ projects. They have extensive award-winning experience in the delivery of multi-unit residential, mixed-use projects and hotels and resort.

Their intention with this project is to create a precinct that will allow for the changing demographic on the periphery of the city. They want to create a space that encourages formal and informal interaction as well as social cohesion where the functional and aesthetic requirements and the interface between residential and commercial are successfully managed. This space is a perfect opportunity to implement environmentally sustainable principals.



Urban & Landscape Design

SpaceLabSpacelab are a team of specialist town and strategic planners, urban, industrial and interior designers and landscape architects. Over the past 20 years they have designed over 20,000 home-sites in and around Canberra, contributing to the development of a substantial proportion of new suburbs and estates.

They are challenging current thinking on urban landscape design with this project, ensuring the site becomes a contemporary, user-driven and community-focused landscape setting. The edges, links and people spaces of the site will be transformed to provide a space that talks to the history and heritage of the site. They’re about achieving inner city density while sustaining garden city character through the use of terrace housing.

As part of Landscape Align, they have designed Canberra’s ‘Floriade’ for the past 14 years. Twice a year they donate their services to projects that benefit local charities or community groups, such as the Canberra BMX Club.

They love what they do and their passion is rewarded by the level of client satisfaction, the awards they win and the timeless places and spaces they create.
