Manly House 02


This project is located in a heritage conservation area of Manly. Our clients’ brief was to add a first floor addition that was providing more bedrooms and a second bathroom for the house.

To do this, we designed within the existing roof structure to contain 2 bedrooms, a bathroom and a study/lounging space. New dormers were added to assist with creating functional rooms. The naturally occurring roof form was also used underneath to create distinctive raked ceilings.

The greatest compliment we received were the neighbours asking us what we had done to the house. The first floor addition has successfully been designed and built within the existing roof structure, complimenting to the existing house’s heritage values.
