Manly Apartment

A once dark and unfriendly apartment was transformed by Annabelle Chapman Architect into a bright and sunny space with coastal style reflecting its location near Manly Harbour in Sydney.

  • area / size 2,906 sqft
  • Year 2018
  • Location Sydney, Australia,
  • Type Apartment,
  • An existing whole floor apartment within a small 90’s block close to Manly Harbour. The owners loved the location, but not the dark, unfriendly spaces. The brief was to maximise the sunlight and brighten up the darker spaces and bring in a coastal style.

    The apartment was gutted, new limestone floors laid throughout, except for the Bedrooms. Striking marble for the Bathrooms and Kitchens continued the theme. Extensive joinery allowing for clever storage and was also a very important part of the brief, limed oak being the timber used predominantly. The lighting was designed to elevated the ceilings and focus the outlook to the view beyond.
