The fundamental architectural proposition explored in this project was how do you add to a building which has its own history and place within the existing iconic environment of Campbell Parade. The design response was to place a lightweight metal clad structure onto the roof of the existing “art deco” building. This white pristine metallic cladding with its irregular jointing patterns make for a strong visual contrast to the rendered masonry building below. As a formal gesture, the project is an exercise of clear delineation between the contemporary new structure and the old building.

Generous light filled open living spaces flow onto expansive external entertaining areas with a full view of the beach and the sweep of Bondi Bay. Fire regulations restricted the amount of glazing allowed which meant a clever use of skylights, fire windows, low level glass louvres and full height glazing in central areas, ensuring filtered light throughout. External and internal lines are blurred due to the white metallic cladding with its intricate random patterning flowing into the interior wall and ceiling. Other devices such as an external horizontal blade are employed to form a daybed and create a continuous floating joinery element.

Materials & Detailing Intent:

A palette of light textured materials including wide lime washed timber floor boards, white and silver Alucobond cladding, limestone and Calacutta marble were used to create a bright and airy interior. White Alucobond cladding lines the central corridor and is offset by a colorful photographic image of the sunset by a local photographer complimented by the water feature which flows below. Joints are expressed and are used in the ceiling to integrate the LED light fittings.

A central island Calacutta marble bench top formed the centre piece of the kitchen which is otherwise understated in white with stainless steel bench top and splash backs. Materials are consistently generous with the use of monolithic limestone slabs in the bathrooms limiting the number of joints and wide timber boards are used for the interior and exterior living spaces.
