Penthouse Apartment

The Brief

Commercial Developers approached Fordham-Bryant Interiors for their interior design needs, requesting a number of concepts for their property and wanted a high end apartment design.


The developers had plans to build residential accommodation which overlooked the local waterway and foreshore area. The infrastructure would include a number of restaurants, bars and walkways for the community.


The target market for these properties was single and coupled professionals who had an appreciation for style, up to date trends, high-quality detail and who had sophisticated taste and enjoyed entertaining. The developers had asked that a concept was to be provided for the Penthouse Apartment within this building and a sufficient budget and time frame of five weeks was provided to deliver this.


Inspiration was gained by the views of the foreshore that this apartment would afford. As such, we wanted to provide a concept that would communicate our ideas of bringing the outside-in. A colour scheme was chosen using the water as inspiration. With a variety of blues, greens and turquoise readily known for the feelings of balance, growth, comfort, tranquillity, confidence and success that they promote, which worked perfectly for this current brief.


A statement wallpaper (Rain Forest by Mind the Gap) and a paint shade of teal was applied to the remaining walls. Premium elm timber bi-fold shutters were installed on the large windows to control privacy and lighting which also have the option of being opened fully to enjoy the views beyond.


Opulent mirror finish furniture was installed for a luxurious finish along with high-backed arm chairs finished in a jewel velvet finish, a Chesterfield style super-king sized bed in a rich-grey material was installed which was complimented with a plethora of scatter cushions and soft finishing.  


Antique gold lighting and electric fixtures were used to compliment the up-market finish required.


Don't miss the detail....

A concept was created using the floor-plan and client brief provided by the client.
