Platform inherited a court approved design for the site and stepped up to the challenge, refining and evolving the design to align with a more contemporary coastal aesthetic. Surrounded by Interwar brick buildings, we explored a light brick in a modern form.
16 Apartments wrap around a retained heritage building, ensuring a clear definition between old and new.
This project is located in the heart of Manly’s CBD, close to our office, so our understanding of the site became intrinsic to the final design which sits comfortably mid-way between harbour and ocean.
