Project and details

Gisborne Residence I
Type: single custom designed residence
Architects: Manish, Tse Ying
Year: 2013-2014
Scale: 1.1 Ha
The challenge: As the brief is quite extensive for a single storey dwelling, the main challenge is to avoid spaces becoming too cluttered together.
Our solution: The floor plan is centralized around main living spaces, with separate wings extending out to cater for different private spaces. We have kept the master suite to be on one end of the dwelling for additional privacy, while another wing is used for the children’s rooms. The garage is visually connected to the main house by means of vertical battens forming a walkway screen to the entry.
