Bondi Apartment

A yellow brick apartment building yields a secret and thus surprising interior, based upon a palette provided by soap-finishing the existing timber parquetry floor, reflecting the preoccupations of the Danish owner/collaborator. This timber palette is extended with a series of new plywood furniture pieces, laminated with Australian hardwood and also soap finished. These pieces provide for sitting, sleeping and display spaces, and contain within them further secret storage compartments. The combination of blonde timber palette and extensive storage enable an interior spaciousness that is unexpected for an apartment of this size.
