When you’re dealing with a luxury Penthouse in the world’s tallest building, there should be no compromises on design; it should ooze with glamour and opulence. With a $ 1.2 million budget, the Client’s brief was “a space for entertaining close family and friends”. The restraints of the 600 m2 Penthouse were very stringent from the irregular space limiting floor, low ceilings, unsightly building shafts and structural columns through to the anchor-secured external furnishings. The finished product was achieved through carefully planned spatial dynamics and surface applications with a variety of materials. Materials include Barissol illuminated membranes with silk screen printing, porviva finished wall panels, illuminated acrylic areas, glass flooring, embossed leather floor tiles, water features, bespoke and procured designer furniture, suspended nickel screens, decorative lighting, Paula Lenti crocheted area rugs, LED glass technologies with other design features mixed in using exquisite fabrics and textured layers. The milky-white scheme has a slight James Bond film set feel with sixties sculptural furniture illuminated by oversized lamps and kitsch metallic accessories. The backlit winter forest scene can be seen quite out of place but coming in from 40ºC heat, it feels peaceful and calming. A semi-transparent screen lets natural light through the areas with water trickling down creating tranquility. Multiple Living Areas are defined through metallic screens, raised uplit acrylic flooring and seating following the ovular penthouse shape with Kitchen, Dining, TV and Office areas incorporated. The color scheme introduces darker color shades and materials to the Bedrooms, creating the necessary warmth through embossed leather flooring, leather wall panels, black fur throws and silver grey textured wallpapers. The more urban exterior includes designer furniture, plush rugs and lighting creating four seating groups. We have been successful in designing a space to impress much like the location with a different design approach than many other luxury Penthouses.
