HEAD IN THE CLOUDS: A GLASS PENTHOUSE
With all this time spent indoors, loving your space has never been more important. And if you haven't seen the Collins House recently listed penthouses, you're gunna want to check them out. Now that's a space we can love...! With spectacular views, this dreamy apartment is the definition of head stuck in the clouds (but in the best possible way).
Warning - real estate envy ahead...
Offering breathtaking, unparalleled views across Melbourne's famous skyline, the Yarra River and towards Port Phillip Bay, Collins House is straight out of our dreams. Spanning across 60 floors, the mixture of expansive multi-level lofts and single-level apartments, each apartment features floor to ceiling windows - so you can feel like you're floating in the sky - super cool!
“Throughout the design process we envisioned the resident to feel a part of the city; entwined in the surrounding urban context by connecting Melbourne’s skyline at every possible occasion.- Carlos Lara, Bates Smart Associate
Located on Level 56, the three-bedroom penthouse is the true jewel in the crown - with the east side of the floor located within the cantilevered portion of the building, creating a living space that juts out of the tower. If this isn't the closest thing to experiencing life among the clouds, we don't know what is! With Royal Oak Herringbone flooring (drool), this penthouse defines the ultimate urban living experience. With elegant lines and intricate attention to detail, the space uses elements from the external facade tower design to create a truly breathtaking and unique space like no other.
“We sought to create axes of view throughout the penthouse and this formed the key concept of positioning living spaces closer to the view, while places of concentration and privacy - such as the kitchen, dining or office - are positioned further from the view while still holding on to that connection through vignettes of the city.” - says Carlos
With a one-of-a-kind location and soaring heights, this penthouse allows residents to enjoy unencumbered views of Melbourne's iconic scenery and cityscape. Soak up beautiful landmarks like the Royal Botanical Gardens, Royal Park, the MCG, Yarra River, the Melbourne Zoo and Flemington Racecourse and enjoy incomparable views of Melbourne’s spectacular New Years Eve fireworks.
