Penthouse at Ocean Drive, Sentosa (2015)
Situated along Ocean Drive at Sentosa Cove, this penthouse at one of Sentosa island's premium condominium features beautiful panoramic views of both the South China Sea as well as the marina at Sentosa Cove. This 5,000 sqft apartment is designed to capture and maximise the views of the surrounding context with its open plan layout and its selection of materials and furniture.
The layout of the apartment is configured to a neat rectangular space with the removal of the entrance foyer. This opens up the space from the main entrance and creates a continuity between the living and dining areas. The use of a high-gloss ceiling in black reflects the views from the marina, and projects it onto the ceiling of the living area. Subtle movements on the surface of the water and changes in light can be seen and felt from the interior space, which subtly dissolves the boundaries between the external environment into the internal space.
The interior finishes–such as the Brazilian Rosewood, Hermes grey marble flooring–as well as the furniture pieces have been selected to accentuate the experience of coastal front living by complementing the colours and textures of the surrounding, so as to allow the beautiful views at Sentosa Cove to take centrestage.
