Manning Road House

East Malvern, Victoria 2011

In 2010, Noxon Giffen were engaged to design a private residence in Malvern East, Melbourne.

A double storey rectangular volume contains living spaces and the children’s accommodation, whist a separate single storey volume contains a parent’s wing. The two volumes are organized about a central access spine, which forms an Entry Hall and visually links to a pond and fire place beyond. Living spaces are generally located to the north for solar and garden access, whilst articulation of the building form and facade controls day-lighting to the interior spaces. The project adopts a number of sustainable design initiatives.

Since completion it has featured in a number of architectural publications and has been nominated for various awards.
