This contemporary family home at Bondi Beach is the result of an extensive architecture and interior design renovation of an underwhelming 1980s house.

The project was particularly challenging because the original home had very low ceiling heights with minimal space for services, and our approach called for the removal of internal walls to create beautiful wide, open-plan living spaces.

Now, the house features unique elements such as a copper fireplace, a pool cut into existing rock, terrazzo flooring and beeswax plaster walls. Many of these finishes required special care and attention from our highly acclaimed builder Horizon Homes.

Despite its proximity to the ocean, the owners wanted a modern, urban feel, with spaces for craft, music, reading and entertaining spread over three levels. The main living area provides sweeping views over Bondi Beach.

The interiors play host to an eclectic collection of artwork, while remaining highly practical for a young, active family.
