Pacific Bondi Beach is the redevelopment of the Swiss Grand Hotel site on Campbell Parade by Rebel Property Group and Capit.el Group.

Bondi is arguably Australia's most famous beach, its kilometre-long are of golden sand and expanse of gilded bodies almost instantly identifiable. But while it has become synonymous with Sydney lifestyle, it's not somewhere one would ordinarily
look for a hit of chic.
 
The challenge with the Pacific was to create a landmark building that would be more than the sum of its parts: 95 apartments,         a 69-room boutique hotel and six fine dining sites, all built around a central entertainment courtyard. It’s the kind of panopticon design that optimises the see-and-be-seen factor. Valet parking is assured.

With a beach of Bondi’s appeal just across the road, the apartments are, naturally, directed to the exterior. The Pacific's most outstanding spaces are its 21 ‘Lighthouse’ residences. Essentially elongated, elliptical zinc hangars perched atop the five-storey
structure, each one is terrace-fronted, commands majestic vistas out to the ocean, and offers a sense ofimmensc insularity while remaining open to its environs.
 
This dialogue between interior and exterior fascinated all three interior architects engaged to design the living spaces, and all in
different ways. Clients are offered a choice of one of three distinct schemes with which to fit our their Pacific interior, designed
respectively by Koichi Takada of KTA, jonatlian Richards of SJB Australia and George Freedman of PTW.
