THE BOYD RESIDENCE, ANZ TOWER, CBD
Designed to symbolise how its future occupants have reached the pinnacle of success, this brand new triplex penthouse comes complete with a resort-style rooftop pool, huge harbour and city views, and reception spaces of epic scale and grandeur.
Named the world’s finest residence at the International Design & Architecture Awards 2017, this trophy home is more than 25,800sqft and has four bedrooms, each with its own marble bathroom from which bathers can lie back and enjoy unobstructed views across the city through floor-to-ceiling windows. Secure garaging, 24-hour security and a private lift that opens onto the penthouse’s champagne bar also feature. The expansive study is large enough to resemble a club room. WOW FACTOR:
This “sky mansion” occupying the crown of a bank building was originally planned to accommodate corporate entertaining facilities for the bank downstairs, so its interior architecture does not follow conventional form. Instead there are expansive doubleheight reception areas with soaring walls of glass angling in overhead, and curvaceous interior walls and galleries shaped by guitarmakers, because these forms required their skill to realise. The 200 privately commissioned furnishings make its rooms homely.
