The upper level is home to the enlarged living and dining area, made possible with the increased floor area gained from removing the internal stairwell from the existing double height space, and creating the Sky Vault. It also features a disappearing kitchen in teakwood, guest bedroom with ensuite, adjacent car garage, and two large loggias with sparkling city and water views to the North, East, and South.
The Sky Vault connects the two floors, and is a disappearing, glass-encased staircase and vertical chamber. It is designed to provide storage for unique collections owned by the apartment’s owner, whether they be shoes, wine, or something entirely more exotic. Maximizing efficiency and creating character, the Sky Vault is on display as the heart of PH1 and is an exhibition for its residents’ most prized possessions. Boasting a walkable glass ceiling, teak stairs, and automated extending glass railing and hatch for access, the Sky Vault transforms the stairwell into a safe and a gallery — becoming its own work of art in the process.
