Our clients purchased this penthouse in a new residential block prior to completion, giving the design team scope to make major changes to the interior. Space planning by the architect created generous spaces with deep portals repeated throughout – framing rooms and views.

The apartment has house-like proportions with high ceilings and a mansard roof that creates interesting shapes within some of the rooms. We lined the deep portals with timber emphasizing the transition between rooms and creating depth, texture and contrast between dark and light finishes.

The level of detail in the joinery and the finishes throughout are refined, richly layered and meticulously detailed.

The furnishings are in keeping with the interior design language, with layers of texture and colour, shape and form creating a cohesive home reflecting the owners’ personalities.
