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.
Unlike the modern minimalist trend this one is from an era where various shades and designs were used lavishly to create vibrant and cheerful interiors. And there is indeed nothing ‘neutral’ about the interiors here as each room seems to have its own distinctive personality and with even unusual décor like the brass pole in the kitchen and old record player that is showcased in the living room.
The interiors largely follow a sleek and almost minimalist trend that seems absolutely apt for the apartment while the completely neutral shades offer a serene setting. The large floral design on one of the walls in the living area presents an interesting and appealing contrast as well. The bedrooms sport modern furnishings and come loaded with plenty of accessories to charm upon entering the room and the kids’ bedroom seems to incorporate an extra dash of color here and there.
