PALACE IN THE SKIES空中宮殿

A NEW BANGKOK LANDMARK IS INSPIRED BY AN UNLIKELY SOURCE – THE ITALIAN RENAISSANCE 靈感源自意大利文藝復興時代的曼谷新地標

Discovery - - SPONSORED FEATURE -

WALK AROUND THE well-groomed neighbourhood of Phrom Phong in Bangkok, and you might notice there’s more than a little of Italy about it.

That’s thanks to Vittorio, a new 28-floor luxury apartment block, on Sukhumvit Soi 39. From the outside, it looks like the very pinnacle of glassy Asian urban architecture, with floor-to-ceiling windows and a vertiginous swimming pool on the roof. Walk inside, and it’s like stepping inside a classic Florentine palace.

The newly minted condominium Vittorio, named after 19th century Italian king Victor Emmanuel II, the first royal to rule a united Italy since the sixth century AD, takes its inspiration from Florence’s famed Uffizi Gallery – starting from the moment you enter this vertical palazzo.

Stepping inside Vittorio, the first thing you’ll see is the Galleria Medici lobby – named after the all-powerful aristocratic Italian family – decked out in Palissandro Bluette Italian marble, a luxury material that hails from the Alps in northern Italy. Note the U-shape of the Galleria Medici: it mimics the elegant, shaded courtyard of the Uffizi.

Florence’s Uffizi Gallery is one of the greatest art galleries in the world, particularly famed for its collection of Italian Renaissance art (including works by Leonardo da Vinci, Botticelli and Titian). Vittorio was also inspired by the Uffizi’s 在曼谷的鵬蓬漫步,你會發現這裡不但環境雅致,還散發意大利氣息。

這份意大利氣息來自瑰麗堂皇的Vittorio大廈。這座豪華住宅樓高28層,位於素坤逸路39號的Vittorio大廈,每層都坐擁落地大玻璃窗,天台更有空中泳池,堪稱亞洲都市摩登建築的登峰造極之作。走進大廈內部,卻猶如進入一座古典的佛羅倫斯宮殿。

這幢剛落成的住宅大廈取名Vittorio,源自19世紀意大利國王Victor Emmanuel二世,這位君主是自公元六世紀以來首位君臨統一後的意大利疆土的帝王。建築靈感受佛羅倫斯著名的烏菲茲美術館啟發,甫踏進這幢摩天宮殿,即可感受濃厚的藝術氣息。

走進Vittorio大廈,首先來到麥迪奇藝廊,這是大廈的大堂,名稱來自對意大利有深遠影響的貴族世家麥迪奇家族。大堂採用的Palissandro Bluette雲石,是一種十分名貴的石材,來自意大利北部阿爾卑斯山一帶,而麥迪奇藝廊的U型設計,則是仿傚烏菲茲美術館典雅的有蓋庭院。

Vasari Corridor, which connects the Palazzo Vecchio with the Palazzo Pitti along the banks of the city’s Arno River. In Bangkok, the idea of Florence’s Vasari Corridor manifests itself in Vittorio’s private pathways between residential and public spaces, ensuring an exceptional level of privacy.

Vittorio’s Italian flavour extends beyond the interiors, which were spearheaded by British designer Alexander Lamont, who draws inspiration from decorative Western and Eastern artforms of the early 20th century. At Vittorio, the kind of seclusion you imagine on holiday in Tuscany permeates the atmosphere of the apartments, all designed with the utmost privacy in mind.

There are four units per floor – 88 in total – all with private lift access (and decorated with shagreen, a natural but hard-to-find material). Flats are all set on the corners of each floor, so you don’t share any common walls with your neighbours. Not only does this mean total privacy in one of the world’s most electric cities, but it also means a blockbuster view over central Bangkok and the curve of the Chao Phraya River.

Then there’s the injection of the glamour of an Italian lifestyle. The Vittorio concierge, in the Galleria Medici lobby, is on hand; while the in-res gym is a work of art in itself: an Arno Vitality Pool with a seven-station hydrotherapy circuit, as well as a panoramic workout space decked out with state-of-the-art Technogym equipment, which – no surprise – hails from Italy.

Residents who want to swap 16th century Italy for 21st century Bangkok don’t have far to go. On Vittorio’s doorstep is one of Bangkok’s buzziest districts: Phrom Phong. See the box (right) for more neighbourhood information.

Prices start at 28 million Thai baht. For more information, see vittorio-residence.com
