Bondi Back to the Future by Chris Bosse of LAVA plays with the 1960s dream of a technological future, and that vision realised in the 21st century.
A 1920s Californian bungalow with an outdated and convoluted 1970s renovation. The five bedroom, house is transformed into a four-bed four-bathroom house, in a desirable Bondi beach location. The retro-Jetsons look is a little bit space age, a little bit 60s, with inside/outside flow, adaptable spaces, latest technologies, natural materials, curvaceous shapes, responsive lighting and lots of glass.
Complex problem solving saw clever engineering replace solid walls and utilities that blocked the inside/outside flow. Within the same footprint, pivot doors, disappearing sliding doors and screens offer privacy, ventilation and connection to an infinity garden, a little oasis. Flexible internal spaces allow various configurations for different ambiences. The house runs on solar and natural ventilation. The client’s favourite designers are integral to the design
