The Bondi Penthouse was designed by Brian Meyerson Architects (Kevin Ng) (www.mprdg.com).
We wanted this project to have a clear distinction between new and old. When we met with the council’s heritage officer he said, ‘We don’t want to see this building. Do whatever you have to do, we just don’t want to see it.’ That led to our decision to make it white, in a metallic finish.
There’s a lot of angles in the building, It was our idea to distinguish the new building from the existing; the sliding doors were angled, there were angled lines within the elevations and there’s angled patterns within the façade.
