The Beach House

The Beach House is a luxury residential development, situated on Sydney’s most famous seaside promenade, Bondi Beach. The development incorporates two basement levels of carparking, retail and a public arcade on Ground Level and five storeys of residential apartments above.

With a project team consisting of many stakeholders Holmes Fire was able to satisfy their needs by providing fire engineered Alternative Solutions to:

  • Provide fewer egress stairs than the original design, thereby maximising saleable floor area for both the apartments and the Ground Floor retail spaces;
  • Reduce the bulky appearance of spandrels between levels; and
  • Permit large openings near the boundary to maximise the spectacular views across Bondi Beach.
