Bondi House by Fearns Studio

By • Nov 19, 2013 •  Selected Work 

Bondi House, located in Sydney, Australia, was designed by Fearns Studio.

The home is open and clear, with plenty of natural light entering through various sources.

Bondi House by Fearns Studio:

“An inner city heritage terrace alteration, the Bondi house was conceived as a first floor timber tube above a ground level brick box behind the retained portion of the house.

Skylight penetrations bring light into the centre of the plan, help define spaces within it and protect the privacy of neighbouring dwellings from upper level rooms while large glazed doors open new ground level interiors to unobtrusive garden courtyards.

Deep door reveals in the kitchen and living areas frame smaller spaces within the open plan with light and rhythm. The doors themselves emphasise this further by sliding completely clear of their openings.

Warmth is given to the white plaster walls and ceilings and to concrete flooring with oak cabinetry, windows, doors, and with blackbutt flooring through the remainder of the house.”

    Architects have big responsibility towards their clients, I.e, not to make their clients spend money on unnecessary, superfluous designs which have no utility.
