Contemporary Bondi Rooftop Penthouse, Australia

 

The Bondi penthouse project has been designed by Sydney-based design studio Brian Meyerson Architects. The contemporary rooftop penthouse is located in a 1920s building in Bondi Beach, one of Sydney‘s most iconic beaches.

Hardly visible from street level, this three bedroom penthouse features a large deck terrace with fantastic views over the ocean. There is also an unexpected stunning swimming pool and some contemporary furniture.

According to the architects the concept behind the project was:  “How do you add to a building which has it’s own history and place within an existing environment which it contributes to form a place in one of Sydney’s iconic beaches.

“The design response was to plant a lightweight metallic clad addition onto the existing building. This white pristine metallic cladding with it’s irregular jointing patterns make for a strong visual contrast to the rendered solid masonry building below. As a formal gesture, the project is an exercise of delineating between ‘new’ and ‘old’ – respectfully.” Images courtesy of Brett Boardman.
