On the peninsula of Palm Beach, a northern Sydney suburb, a holiday home is treated to a restrained, yet luxe, renovation.

In Sydney’s scenic Palm Beach suburb, a waterfront villa was in desperate need of a remodel. The existing home featured a flawed, ineffectual layout and little connection to the outdoors—a genuine frustration given the home’s spectacular location.

The kitchen now opens out to a courtyard and outdoor dining area thanks to large glass doors.

Led by principal Jeremy Bull and Charlene Cong, Sydney–based studio Alexander & Co. transformed the villa into a sophisticated, airy abode. Seeking to improve the home’s circulation and connection to the landscape, the studio reconfigured spaces and opened corridors to facilitate entertaining. Large expanses of windows offer sublime vistas, while a new glass door connects the kitchen to an alfresco dining area.

In creating a comfortable home-away-from-home for their clients, Alexander & Co. opted for a subdued material palette and bespoke interior furnishings. Marble countertops, cool hardwood floors, and a muted color story contribute to a lived-in quality for this understated, elegant retreat.
