Steeling the show
The heart of this home is a spectacular free-standing curved steel staircase, creating a North Bondi semi with a contemporary pulse.
Murriverie Rd, North Bondi makes you forget you’re standing in a semi-detached duplex. Generous proportions and northern aspect make this home spacious and sun drenched. In contrast, the dark timber panels in the powder room offer a different mood, a black pearl in this bright two-storey beach house. The pivot point is the dramatic steel staircase which fills the double height void and the gaze with wonderment, perfectly encapsulating the bold architecture and contemporary themes.
Significant alterations and additions to a single storey semi-detached home, to create a 3 bedroom + media room, north facing home
Majority of finishes + fixtures imported and coordinated with foreign suppliers, including flooring, joinery + door/window package
