Manning Road House - IDEA 2020

Manning Road House

The house is a contemporary home for a young family, with two interconnecting interior volumes connected by a 23-metre linear skylight. Open, communal and intimate spaces are created within the sculptural volumes. Light scoops capture northern light in the bedrooms, while skylights and screens animate the living areas. ‘Crevices’ between the volumes bring landscape, light and ventilation into the heart of the dwelling. A raw, elemental palette is imbued with softness through the play of light and space.
