Michael Marshman & Associates Pty Limited
We enjoy the country lifestyle and the people who live here on the beautiful far south coast of NSW. There is a sense of community that you can only find in small, isolated regional centres such as Bega. Our aim is to provide a high standard of design to each and every project that we work on. Our clients are very important to us and this is reflected in the high number of repeat commissions. We welcome inquiries about our services and we are happy to meet with prospective clients to discuss their project and offer advice and ideas. For more information, please visit our website.

‘Dog and Thong’ house
Our clients (a family of 4 with 2 teenagers) loved the laid-back beach lifestyle at Tathra. They wanted to hold parties, entertain friends, accommodate visitors, prepare school lessons and conduct piano lessons. Special design ‘gems’ include the hot-dipped galvanised welded chain at the entry, the embedded footprints of the dog and children in the paved concrete entrance, the timber blade wall that runs through the house and anchors together the different levels and spaces, the covered deck with its retractable flyscreen and sliding wall panels enabling the living areas to spill outside during summer and become enclosed and protective during winter.
Courtyard and street-scape enhancement
Merimbula RSL Club, 2008
Although the courtyard space is not large, there are features that create a dynamic impact such as the curved timber plywood awning on the northern wall and the beautiful granite fountain. The double height copper wall creates reflections and adds ‘warmth’ and life to the space. During summer the fixed awning umbrellas beside the water feature provide an ideal place for a relaxing afternoon. During the cooler months and at night the umbrellas with integrated gas heaters improve comfort and encourage patrons to stay longer. The courtyard is popular with groups wishing to enjoy the outdoors in comfort and style.
