This creation from the MPR Design Group is an ultra modern penthouse apartment perched on top of an original Art Deco building above. The apartment boasts unbroken views of Bondi Bay and Beach. Angular windows and skylights allow the 180 square meters of living space to be bathed in masses of natural light.
A well-appointed rooftop lounge area gives you a specious gathering area for celebrations or a relaxing time beneath the stars. The dark wood beneath your feet invites you to shed your shoes and socks and soak up the warmth of the sun captured by the flooring.
Designed to the highest specifications by architects Bates Smart the penthouse that sits atop the award-winning Melburnian building on St Kilda Road is one of the finest inner city living spaces in Australia. The wrap-around observation deck gives unbroken vistas of Melbourne’s central business district the Royal Botanical Gardens and Port Philip.
The curved wall was used to create a covered exit to the rooftop terrace where the family living here can enjoy fresh air and views of the surroundings. On the inside the wall also acts as a defining feature helping the architects design a spectacular display of wooden beams and details contrasting with the white walls. The tall graceful curved beams achieve their length by being joined by unusual mirrored dovetails secured with wooden pegs.
The spectacular green lawn that is spread across the courtyard of the residence is a wonderful visual treat both from the interior and exterior and helps the house blend in with the natural setting of the region beyond its own borders. A vast foyer welcomes you with glee while the wooden paneling on the outside not only heightens the beauty of the structure but also acts as an energy-saving feature and regulates the temperature inside.
If you wish to own a home that takes you back in time even if it is only for a tad bit then this is a fine option. Especially considering that it is a home in the beautiful city of Melbourne. Nestled in the resort island of Sentosa in Singapore this is all about merging smart features of design with a modern retreat that will offer its residents some panoramic views without compromising on their privacy.
