Take a glimpse at some of the most impressive penthouses in Singapore that boast expansive rooftops and picturesque views like no other.
Rivalling GCBs and landed properties, penthouses have a special place in the Singapore’s property market today, especially amongst ultra-high-net-worth (UHNW) buyers worldwide. A true luxury and stylish investment, these homeowners can truly benefit from the intrinsic value of having a penthouses given the limited development space in Singapore.
Indeed a novelty amongst the elite, penthouses continue to be in demand for having the most exceptional views of the island city, utmost privacy, and generous spatial proportions, unlike typical high-rise properties. With ample room to dream up a lofty paradise, designers and homeowners alike enjoy having the freedom to create their desired homes due to their expansive nature and rooftops.

Pushing good design to the limits, Thexton Smith Interiors had the opportunity to reimagine the look and feel of a luxurious penthouse in Marina Bay. Rented out on a two-year lease for a couple and their teenage son, the 4,800 sq ft property includes four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and a picturesque vantage point of the sea.
Incorporating the bold and expressive style Thexton Smith Interiors is lauded for, a piece de resistance in the apartment is the sculptural light installation that breaks the monotony of the original interior’s predominantly white shell while showcasing the impressiveness of the high ceiling and space of the living room with its composition of glass rods that mimics the impression of waves. Taking a week to complete, it took eight people to assemble the glass rods to create the nature-inspired installation. As this installation is for temporary use, the glass rods are made from 97 percent sustainable materials so that the fixture can be recycled or reused.

Embodying the homeowners’ lavish and go-getting lifestyles, the abode encompasses their spirit with finishes that have a timeless style and are equally durable. This includes the living room’s water-repellent sofas and armchairs from Castlery, Hermès pillows for a pop of colour, and the Gucci Decor heron print wallpaper that elegantly complements the daffodil-yellow walls by the stairwell corridor.
