The 110 apartment development, Viking by Crown is situated in Sydney’s Waterloo.
Spence & Lyda founder Fiona Spence
said she was delighted when Crown Group asked her to style the 212 square metre penthouse.
The 10-storey building was designed by innovative Bondi-based architects MPRDG and inspired by the work of internationally-renowned Israeli artist Yaacov Agam - founder of the post-war kinetic art movement and creator of ground-breaking sculpture, paintings and architecture.
The brand-new three-bedroom Viking by Crown penthouse sits on the top floor of Crown Group’s new architecturally-designed building and will open to the public from the first week of October.
In styling the luxury penthouse, Spence & Lyda focused on bringing the outside world in, Fiona explained.
“When I first walked into the apartment I was drawn to the living room and the outdoor space,” Fiona said.
“We were standing there as the sun went down and I was struck by the amazing quality of natural light. We worked with the apartment’s own elements to bring that light in.”.
To furnish the modern penthouse Spence & Lyda selected an eclectic combination of one-of-a-kind pieces; including an old Javanese wooden cart refashioned into a coffee table, woven wicker chairs sourced from Denmark and porcelain lights hand thrown in Melbourne.
Art by Guy Maestri and Camie Lyons from the Olsen Irwin Gallery are a focal point on the walls.
“The opening of the new penthouse will be a chance for property and design enthusiasts to step inside one of Crown Group’s coveted luxury Sydney penthouses, and see it for themselves.”
More than 98 per cent of Viking by Crown’s apartments has sold ahead of the building’s expected completion this October.
