Ranu House Manly

Featured New Home

Brief:

This existing 1930's 2 storey house located on a difficult hill-top site, required extensive remodelling to improve the quality of the spaces. The interior was tired, dark and cold with limited flow and access through to interior and exterior living areas.

The client wanted a design that would transform the building into a spacious and light filled home, that would capture the north east hill-top breeze, and which considered simple construction methods for this owner / builder project.

Solution:

The final design involved completely demolishing the unsightly hipped roof, and the rear half of the house, along with stripping bare the remaining interior and extending the basement by excavation.

Based on the thermal rating system used at the time, this house achieved a 4 out of 5 star rating from what originally only achieved 1.5 stars.

Approval:

DA Approved by Manly council

Construction:

Ritek roofing system, cedar windows and trims, hoop pine and plasterboard interior, cement rendered rendered masonry, timber decking and stone cladding.

Completed:
