Ebony House has been designed for an awesome young family. Their brief was to consider family, location, context, environment and a timeless architectural style.

The form responds to the mix of federation semi detached dwellings and Californian bungalows that line ‘the flats’ of Manly, whilst introducing a contemporary monotone palette of sustainable materials. The design capitalizes on the north/south aspect whilst minimizing overlooking and overshadowing of neighboring properties.

“Bridie and her Platform team are a group of honest, transparent and experienced architects who have been an absolute joy to work with. The culture and knowledge that flows from the office has resulted in successful outcomes from every angle. I look forward to many more collaborative projects in the future. Legends.”
