M Penthouse is a minimal apartment located in Melbourne, Australia, designed by Oliver Du Puy. Inspired by the beautiful panoramic views of Melbourne’s Royal Botanic Gardens and the city skyline beyond, the brief for the project was to create an ‘urban loft’ that retained the rawness of construction and factory warehouse genealogy, yet encompassed a complete finish and feeling of comfort.The client brief was as much for an art gallery as it was for a family home. The space needed to be flexible to accommodate large scale entertaining and viewings. A dynamic interplay is created between the art, the northern light as a decorative element, and the refined spare interiors.
