The Esplanade, St Kilda

The Brief

To completely gut and convert two large rooftop properties into one large penthouse with a rooftop deck which overlooks St Kilda’s iconic Luna Park and Palais Theatre.  The primary focus for the owner, a young bachelor, was on entertaining spaces with a neutral palate and creating a seamless conversion of the two existing spaces.

The Solution

On the living level, a dramatic and masculine interior space which maximises the space and focuses on the breathtaking views. Wide European Oak boards, natural stone benches and black timber joinery are combined with smoked mirror and monochrome wallpaper. On the rooftop level there is new outdoor entertaining spaces including sun lounge, spa and sauna and bbq.
