Pacific House: Where Contemporary and Neo-Classicism Meet on a Sydney Cliffside

FeaturedPacific House: Where Contemporary and Neo-Classicism Meet on a Sydney Cliffside

Introducing Pacific House, a contemporary residence located in Sydney, Australia. Designed by Alexander & Co. in 2022, Pacific House has been transformed from its 1990s concrete-framed cliffside dwelling into a five-bedroom home that is perfect for family life.

The design of the house was inspired by the client’s European Story of Origin and optimized for views from each room. The exterior facades feature terraces, gardens, balconies and planted edges while inside you can find ceiling details that are focal points throughout each room. Despite complex construction demands due to coastal exposure, Pacific House was eventually breathing new life into an old maid allowing her once again to feel both then & now aged & contemporary ready for her next 30 or so years!
