The apartments are immediately noticeable thanks to the

HBA team proposed then a design that was simultaneously
referring to the experience of sailing and flying Ė by taking
inspiration from private jets and yachts design- and
addressing the desire of the new affluent demographic
group to surround themselves in a luxurious environment.
The color and material palette reflects this thought process:
light and fresh colors and high contrasts dominate the
composition, with carbon fiber trimmings at ceilings and
main terminations, hinting at a performance oriented
design; but at the same time, finely decorated fabrics and
wallpapers complete the space with sophisticated and
delicate decorative layers.
The planning attitude was similarly thought to suit a
modern lifestyle, maximizing openness and a sense of flow.
This is particularly perceivable in the design of the extensive
en-suite bathrooms, closely connected to the bedrooms
trough walk in wardrobes so to enhance a sense of
openness and seamless flow. At the communal spaces,
open kitchens, bar and 3 different lounges, each with a
different character, complete the composition, again,
offering a space that is simultaneously comfortable and
function specific but remains open letting natural light and
air flood the space and ultimately proving the success of
this project: a unique synthesis between opposite forces:
the freedom of emptiness and the luxury of opulence.
