AWS Designer Notes – Manly Residence

News /
20 March 2013

As part of our Designer Notes series, we conducted an interview with Mark Broadley from Giles Tribe Architects on a project he designed in Sydney.

This luxury residential development, comprising of two terrace-style apartments is located in the Sydney beachside suburb of Manly. This duplex home is fortunate enough to sit on the edge of the Pacific Ocean, with breathtaking views from the rear of the building.

The main brief of the project was to ensure views of the ocean were maximised, there was a flow between the outdoors and indoors, and the overall appearance of the two homes needed to be similar.

Giles Tribe Architects worked closely with MidCity Windows to come up with custom design solutions that overcame the project’s various obstacles. Due to the extreme marine environment, the windows and doors were required to be high performance and highly durable, to ensure they were able to stand the test of time with little maintenance.
