Mangerton House 2

Sherson Architecture has been commissioned to design the alterations and additions to a house in Mangerton, Wollongong. The existing art deco building sits proud at the end of a battle axe block and whilst the client required a contemporary addition with additional bedrooms, the modification needed to pay homage to the building’s history and style. The restoration of curved concrete balustrades and portal windows was a requirement for the project and the introduction of aluminum cladding and clear storey windows was critical in redefining this family home.

The result of collaboration with the client, interior designer and builder is a contemporary, north facing home which captures views of the ocean and Illawarra escarpment.
