Retaining the optimistic façade and the generosity of the original dwelling, Templeton has added to the simple rectilinear form while exploring the decorative possibilities of brick construction commonly found in the architecture of the Art Deco movement.

The concept is driven by the format and tactile quality of the handmade bricks. The repetition of the brick pattern produces a new contemporary entity with timeless appeal.

The soft, neutral palette and the detail of the interior are in keeping with the architectural concept, providing visual and emotional calm. The Merriwee House project remains consistent throughout in terms of generosity, palette, light, and happiness.
