Situated on the top floor and occupying half of the lower floor, this project sought to restore and rejuvenate the penthouse suite within a 1950s apartment tower in Toorak.
The aim of the works was to open up the apartment to the immensity of the available views. A wholey unique aspect with 360 views of the city, bay and Dandenongs. The design seeks to capitalise on the multiple vistas giving the spaces a feeling of infinite extension.
The interior design and finishes aimed to draw on the history of the building while also creating a complimentary background to the views. Seeking at once to make the environment homely, relaxing to the eye and also subdued against the skyline.
Commissioned to be an investment, the design sought to create a sophisticated environment that carried longevity. Works here were to be a legacy and not about appealing to short lived trends.
