A culmination of some of Melbourne’s finest luminaries in residential design, enjoy a privileged lifestyle at this luxurious two level, three-bedroom, four-bathroom penthouse of Palais Toorak, the unique boutique high-end residential offering conceived by Craig Easton on the edge of the Toorak Village.
Bringing together the combined talents of architect, Rob Mills, SJB Interiors director Andrew Parr and renowned garden designer Paul Bangay, Easton has created a magnificent penthouse that represents the epitome of sophisticated living in this glorious building of only seven bespoke residences.
The Penthouse at Palais Toorak in Melbourne, Australia. In many ways, Palais Toorak heralds Easton’s 40 years in the business, and is a home that “offers the highest possible level of design, fit out and construction” according to Easton. Created, he says, “to stand the test of time”. Situated in Melbourne’s most prestigious suburb, The Penthouse at Palais Toorak has all the enduring qualities that will arguably be appreciated for generations to come.
Spanning across two levels atop Palais Toorak, a boutique collection of just seven luxury residences, The Penthouse blurs global boundaries and transcends eras with its worldly sensibilities. Melding New York’s cutting edge Style Moderne with Parisian Art Deco undertones, the design eloquently tips its hat to history whilst retaining modern-day glamour. The interior inspiration took seed, Parr says, in the aesthetic of classic Parisian hotels of the 1930s, “specifically, the Plaza Athenee,” he reveals, “formal, yet luxurious.”
“Some elements period, some elements contemporary and others Avant Garde,” is how Parr describes the interior’s influences. Stone and silk dress the walls of The Penthouse’s entrance, while inbuilt bespoke cabinetry crafted from patinated brass and timber flourish the living areas. Notes of timber veneer also weave in throughout the space, bringing a sense of richness and warmth, and faceted glass is incorporated for a touch of Art Deco.
