north bondi amenities
Playing with the horizon
Lymesmith worked very closely with Sam Crawford Architects from concept design through to completion of the North Bondi Amenities project. This meant that key decisions affecting the placement of each of the many materials could be thoughtfully integrated into the detailing. As an award winning project North Bondi Amenities demonstrates the value of real collaboration, where respect and openness between disciplines and designers produces tangible benefits.
One of the key moves in the design was the establishment of an horizon line through the building, drawn in relationship to the strikingly wide horizon of iconic Bondi Beach. All building materials and finishes change in some way at the horizon line, giving a cohesive and calm solidity to the building – a feeling of quality and care.
