Manly House

This is a new family home with five bedrooms on a small block two streets back from Manly Beach. The house is a strong sculptural form created by using a simple extruded shape with timber cladding for the upper level and crisp white cubic forms for the lower supporting form.
The timber detailing internally reinforces the sculptural form of the exterior. Colour is used to create warmth, character and interest in the simple white forms.
A high level of detail carries through form the form of the exterior into the interior joinery forms, colours and materials.
