Located in Sydney, Australia, this penthouse apartment is the work of Christopher Polly Architect. The apartment is situated in a building originally designed by Ancher Mortlock & Murray in the late 50’s that offers beautiful views over the Sydney Harbour to the north and to the Double Bay and Point Piper to the east.
What you see here is the result of a complete internal reconfiguration and refurbishment of a top floor penthouse. The whole project was meant to improve the way the apartment was divided and structured, to make it more functional and to give it a new look. The new penthouse now has a clear and practical distinction between the public and private areas and the rooms and joined together by a common structure. The bathroom and kitchen were enlarged and all the rooms now benefit from more natural light thanks to the large windows.
