With 74 of its 76 available apartments sold within hours on the first day of sale, the Pacific Bondi Beach development has indicated continued confidence in the Sydney property market in spite of broader market trends. In a first for Pacific’s property buyers and investors, the development, on the site of Sydney’s famous Swiss Grand in Bondi, offers a choice of interiors schemes by three local designers. Australian design studio SJB Interiors have worked alongside fellow designers George Freedman and Koichi Takada on the project that will see the beachside block transformed into a new residential, retail and dining precinct by the end of 2013.
Offering the finest in seaside living standards, Pacific, offers one, two and three bedroom apartments as well as expansive penthouses known as Lighthouses which are expected to sell for up to $14 million. “We wanted our interior to feel very much like a luxurious retreat,” says Jonathan Richards, Director at SJB Interiors. “We’ve used a lot of white and lighter shades with natural materials and finishes that feel much like a bespoke beach house. We felt it was important that the interior reflect the coastal surroundings of the property.”
Inspired be the sensory nature of Bondi Beach, SJB selected a palette of materials that has a tactile and graphic quality; hand-made patterned tiles from Morocco, aged brass and natural timber veneers are some of the features that distinguish the SJB palette. The three schemes have warmth and character and an overarching sense of beachside elegance.SJB Interiors
