Architecture Design of Little Manly House

Description About The Project

Little Manly House designed by CHROFI, set on the edge of Little Manly Cove, the proposal replaces an ‘inter war period’ two storey conventional brick duplex with a modern duplex. Also, responds more directly to both its impressive harbour-side location and the demands of contemporary living.

Being at the base of the Eastern Hill, this house subject to overland flows and rivulets when it rains as runoff finds its way to the harbor. The site, therefore, has a lushness that has been drawn into the design of the house and gardens. Besides, terraced platforms and waterways guide the movement of water giving the garden more complexity, function, and connection to place.

Indeed, the designer’s principal concept for the arrangement of the house was to create a level ground plane for living within a secluded lush garden perimeter. The primary living level comprises a series of loosely connected living and workspaces and an outdoor living room immersed in the garden.

In addition to this, the topography of the site has been manipulated with much of the site artificially elevated to make this level platform with garaging and ancillary spaces housed beneath at street level, then bedrooms and bathrooms located above.

The Architecture Design Project Information:

Little Manly House with Contemporary Architecture Design by CHROFI
Indeed, the look and feel of the house were inspired by our client’s attraction to mid-century modern architecture and the iconic homes of Palm Springs USA. The Little Manly House is a contemporary version of these early homes expressing itself as an arrangement of well-proportioned rectilinear volumes dressed in carefully composed minimalist facade elements.

The Little Manly House Gallery:

Text by the Architects: Little Manly House is located nearby Little Manly Beach at the base of Manly’s Eastern Hill. The house enjoys oblique views across the street to the harbor to the southwest while the topography rises from the rear yard to the northeast with established trees providing a green sense of enclosure to the rear of the property.
