Custom benchtops from Marblo Australia & New Zealand were specified for a new premium apartment project located very close to Bondi Beach.

Aptly named AQUA, this latest residential development by Leighton Properties features a sophisticated contemporary design and is strategically positioned adjacent to the Westfield shopping centre, just 500 metres from the Bondi Junction train and bus interchange.

Designed by KANNFINCH and DC8 Studio, the tower has a communal garden podium and a rooftop garden, with all of the apartments enjoying excellent views. Northeast facing apartments have ocean and district views, while those oriented to the Northwest take in the view of the Opera House and Sydney city skyline.

Award-winning Koichi Takada Architects, who designed the interiors of the apartments, introduced custom-designed joinery from the kitchens into the living areas. Bondi Beach was the obvious design inspiration with the kitchen islands shaped like a surfboard in larger apartments and a ‘gentle wave’ in the smaller apartments, both featuring custom Marblo benchtops.

The apartments also feature mirrored splashbacks to draw the stunning views inside, as well as white or grey-wash engineered timber floors.
