Finally this is one of the most desirable penthouses in Australia and at $20 million it’s also one of the most expensive. The apartment sits atop The Hyde on Liverpool Street a luxury 35-floor complex designed by WOHA Architects. Sydney-based architectural partners Archer + Wright won the commission to design the penthouse to the very highest specification. It encompasses a massive 570 square meters of internal space
Concrete is used wherever necessary but it seems like the designers have mostly preferred wood with the one used on the outside being more resistant to the rough weather that can hit the region once in a while. The interiors seem simple and elegant and situated at Østhusvik the Dalene cabin offers 120 square meters of private and tranquil escape from the hustle of city life.
On the inside you see wide open spaces and plenty of modern architecture and design that uses sleek and well defined lines. The generous use of glass in the form of floor to ceiling glass windows offers unobstructed views of the sea at all times and from all levels of the villa. An array of balcony spaces private hubs pool deck and lush green surroundings ensure that you spend as much time outside as you do indoors.
Located at Coromandel New Zealand the house overlooks a really scenic area with the ocean on one side and a beautiful hill clad in a carpet of green on the other. Being flanked by such panoramic settings the beach house obviously tries to maximize on the views that it can offer and the large floor-to-ceiling glass windows on the top floor try and offer precisely that. Each room flows into another which gives the feeling of spaciousness as the home tries to maximize on the available area.
Maybe it is just nostalgia or maybe the fact that one can never go back in time revisit the memories of the past but everyone of us is fond of those ‘wonder years’ of the past. And this home in Melbourne might well have that same allure for many who might look back at times that were simpler but also happier.
