Project Carlton Tce House
Description The Carlton Tce House is located on a small lot overlooking Moreton Bay in Manly, Queensland. Our client was seeking a contemporary home with dual living that took advantage of the wonderful views to Moreton Bay. With northern sun and the amazing view at front of house we went about designing a home that allowed the occupants to be together but also have private breakout space split over two levels, while at all times aiming to have northern light provide a connection to our beautiful climate, and of course we needed to connect to the view of the water and islands beyond Our design focused on a two level home, ground floor kitchen, bedrooms and living areas break out to the rear of the home and take advantage of the in ground pool and rear garden. A large void over the entry stairs allows northern light to flood the ground floor and connect the lower and upper floor living zones. The upper level houses the master kitchen, bedroom and casual living areas along with a guest bedroom and plus size deck with direct views across the bay. A combination of private space, casual living and contemporary design focusing on family and entertaining allows this house to respond to our client’s lifestyle both now and in the future.
