Project: North Bondi Mixed Use Development Location: North Bondi

“Hastings” is a mixed use development comprising five apartments and six shops with basement parking.

Located in the Ben Buckler precinct of North Bondi, the idea for the project was to establish an outstanding work of architecture anchoring the prominent corner site.

The form of the building takes its design references from the curved street corner and the adjacent art deco apartment block to the south. The palette of materials is restricted to white rendered walls, silver aluminium window frames and silver metal blinds so that the strong masonry forms are the main visual feature.

The primary elevation faces west so adjustable metal blinds have been used extensively to modulate the sun and light into each apartment. Various other “green” devices have been used throughout the project enabling it to achieve a 5 star energy rating.
