Nine-Square Bondi

Architected by Madeleine Blanchfield and Nick Channon, from Madeleine Blanchfield Architects, Nine-Square Bondi is a captivating project that seamlessly merges Bondi Beach’s identity with global influences.


The project draws from the dynamic vibrancy of Hong Kong, an eclectic collection of art, and love of Brazilian brutalist houses, culminating in a harmonious architectural masterpiece.

At its heart lies the innovative use of durable terrazzo, elegantly gracing the floors of bathrooms and the stairway with authenticity and resilience, reflecting the home’s enduring nature.

Embodying the essence of Bondi’s free-spirited community, the design philosophy interweaves casual, communal, and colourful elements, embracing imperfections that make it distinctive. “Memories of Hong Kong are spread in moments of colour, material, and detail throughout the house”, Blanchfield stated in the Vogue Living feature.

A striking feature is the prominent concrete spiral stair, an artistic statement rising from the entry hall, serving as a sculptural testament to the home’s creativity.

While rooted in Bondi’s freedom of spirit, the design process of this project subtly echoes South America, Asian, and Los Angeles influences, embodying a global tapestry of inspiration.

This project has been Shortlisted for the AIA Awards in the Interior Architecture category and the new Residential Architecture – Houses Category.  Additionally, it was featured in The Local Project.
