Coppin Penthouse is a luxurious private residence designed by the Richmond based Australian architectural firm. The penthouse takes its name from the street on which it is located — Coppin Street – in Richmond, an inner suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 3 km south-east of Melbourne’s Central Business District in the local government area of the City of Yarra municipality.
A long, narrow pool flanks the length of the home on one of the observation decks, creating the perfect location from which to luxuriously admire the incredible views over the surrounding buildings. Lavish spaces, including a modern living room framed by potted plants, lead us into the interior of the home and into yet another layer of this sophisticated home. The tones of its décor are earthy and sober, granting the interior an exquisite and mature elegance.
The kitchen is long and spacious, done with stainless steel counter tops, and equipped with any number of appliances that make this the perfect setting to cook delicious meals in utter comfort. An open dining room adds to this trend, giving residents a sophisticated and chic spot in which to host guests in the height of style. The kitchen’s glass walls open out into the observation deck, which is framed by a row of potted plants and flowers.
This project is based on the total reorganization of the existing interior design under the implementation of a new facade design, to promote the new functionalities of the space, as well as the optimization of the new attic area. The front facade remained unchanged; however, the topography of the backyard was redefined in its entirety, an outdoor dining area was designed for those days of family reunions, with a small garden that connects to the living room and a small pool which will serve to cool off on hot summer days. The house has a north east / south west solar orientation and was built for a family of three — a couple and their child.
It was designed by Guilherme Bivar and Marta Pavão, who form part of the team at the architectural firm in 2017, and it is located in the city of Lisbon, Portugal. The home covers a total ground area of 210 square meters.
