Manly Project 16

Existing house remodel, and additional storey
This home sits in one of the oldest streets in Manly with a garden that houses the oldest Frangipani so it is believed. The family wanted to transform the dark home into a light filled 2 storey home with the vibe of a South African beach house. Utilising a number of techniques, keeping key heritage features, blending the new and old with organic materials, concrete, wood, render, rustic tiling a soothing asthetic was achieved. The focus was on creating a rustic look that feels homely and lived in, yet provides all the modern features that a family requires nowadays.
