Arguably one of the most spectacular residences in Macau, this sensational 3400 square foot apartment on the Taipa waterfront was completely overhauled to create a spacious layout reminiscent of a large American home.The apartment began life as a cramped and dated four-bedroom unit, but underwent a facelift in 2005. Over HK1.5 million dollars and five months of construction later, Macau-based American interior designer Heather Clarke had completely converted the space into uber-modern luxury.
Clarke pushed the envelope in home design in Macau by opening up the kitchen and installing commercial equipment including a huge griddle, double oven, freezer and refrigeration drawers, and a beer keg on tap.
Reducing the number of bedrooms to three allowed for more space, as well as en-suite bathrooms for each bedroom. The bathrooms feature oversized shower areas and rain shower heads, and the master bathroom has a four foot long custom-made marble basin. The third bedroom was converted into a large modern office space – with suede-covered cabinet doors and walls that give a sense of ultimate luxury.
There is dark wood flooring throughout, with recessed lighting in the ceiling, and soft lighting emanating from the pillars. Storage areas are carefully hidden behind slate-tiled cabinet doors that blend in with the walls, while hidden trompe l’oeil pocket doors save on space and match the mirrored cabinetry and shelving. The apartment is completely furnished with custom-made furniture designed specifically for the home.
Floor-to-ceiling windows and glassed balconies look out over the outer harbor, providing spectacular views of the Macau skyline and all three bridges. In a place like Macau where space is fast becoming a premium, this is one home not to be overlooked.
