Oyama ave

III Oyama is a response to the foreshores of Manly Cove. The west facing site had to address the complexities of balancing views with the harsh westerly sun. Angled off form concrete shapes work to steer and direct the residents views whilst also providing shading. The built form is well articulated along the north and south facades to allow for water glimpses from the spaces further from the waters edge. The raw materiality of the design allows for the building to age gracefully and for the architecture to maintain a timeless aesthetic.
