Bondi Penthouse – MPR Design Group Architecture – Australia
Project: MPR Design Group Architecture
Type: Residential – Apartment
Location: Sydney, Australia
Building status: built
The fundamental architectural proposition explored in this 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’ .
