THE DESIGN CHASER

Bondi Junction House by Alexander &CO.

6.18.2020

Having admired and featured some incredible projects by Alexander &CO over the last few years, it’s exciting to see the results of one of their personal projects. The family home of Alexander & CO.’s Principal Jeremy Bull and partner and PR Director Tess Glasson and their four young boys, Bondi Junction House is both an alteration and addition to an existing 1900s Victorian terrace in the Eastern suburbs of Sydney. Inspired by the works of Finnish architect and designer Alvar Aalto, Bondi Junction is a true exploration in scale, texture, volume and practicality. 


The principle aims of the building were to accommodate the needs of a growing young family, maximise spatial economies as a low-cost build, all whilst exploring material expressiveness. Loosely referencing a modernist philosophy, the material palette reveals a contemporary interpretation of Scandinavian style. With beautiful bespoke detailing and elements that surprise, the home joyfully conveys the personal narratives of the people who live in it.


With three renovations in seven years, each stage of the development represents a significant milestone for the family. The interiors reflect this also, with various finishes, materials, and furnishings continuing to evolve, as do the needs and tastes of its occupants. 


The home has been furnished with a stunning collection of design pieces including the Gubi Lounge Chair, Ligne Roset Togo sofa, and the Quaderna Bench by Design Superstudio for Zanota, alongside a wonderful curation of sculptural ceramics from Curatorial+Co and Ondene, and artworks by Henrik Godsk and Hugh Ramage.
