Modern Penthouse in Sydney



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.

The kitchen is linked to a terrace with views over the Harbour. An external mirrored wall also reflects views of the harbour from within the main bedroom. On the western end of the terrace there’s a barbeque area with benches and an outdoor storage area that create a very pleasant and enjoyable space where the whole family could come together. It’s a sheltered space that can be enjoyed for most of the year.
