A coastal beach retreat with a distinctive urban aesthetic. This contemporary residence in City Beach was designed and built by Bacic Group, a Perth studio known for their transformational ideas for iconic and timeless homes.

The client brief involved reinventing the beach house with bold minimalist interiors. Bacic Group's design delivers with a reference to brutalism, implementing strong use of concrete, high contrast tones and smart functionality. Surface curvature and soft furnishings in a neutral colour palette combined with lush greenery and abundant natural light soften the the feel, creating a comfortable and luxurious sea side home.

Furnishings complete the spaces with contemporary Australian and modern European designer brands. The Kepler pendant light by Nemo Lighting accents curvature in it's circular figure 8 over the dining table, and a custom Australian built Concerto linear pendant light sits sharply against the sleek black cabinetry in the kitchen.
