The common theme of the home seems to be a rustic charm and uniqueness that comes wrapped in soft colors and a touch of contemporary style; something that seems all too natural for a Nordic setting and style!
Designed ever so diligently by the creative minds at Christopher Polly Architect Studio the building has given special preference to providing features that promise ample natural ventilation while keeping the home constant connected with its vibrant natural surroundings.
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
All of these add up to create effectively a zero-energy home that is as appealing to environmentalists as it is to interior designers. The interiors are split into well organized living dining and kitchen spaces that form one section while the bedrooms master suite and the bathrooms are housed at a different level. Sophisticated elegant and yet casual in its own refined fashion this is a beach house that is apt for every mood and all occasions.
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.
All of the apartment’s architectural materials have been sensitively selected to add a contemporary feel to the apartment both contrasting and complementing the historic frontage of the historic building beneath. The main structure is clad in a lightweight silver and white Alucobond skin; limestone and Calcutta marble stonework and lime washed timber floorboards and decking complete the elegant design.
On the top floor is a ‘Planter Screen’ which acts as a wall that ensures privacy while also growing little shrubs and vegetation which bring freshness to the home. The Maximum Garden House itself was designed with the specific purpose of letting the parents in the house keep a constant eye on the kids even if they are not in the same room.
