Visionary Design, Historic Origins, Sub Penthouse in Melbourne’s Iconic Toronto House
Widely renowned for its award-winning design and iconic address within Toronto House c1924, this 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom industrial subpenthouse encompasses approximately 350 sqm of light-filled space, just metres from Melbourne's finest restaurants, world-class shopping and high end art galleries.
Better known as 'Blue Cave, White Nest', this customised contemporary haven by Katsieris Origami boasts a rare and unparalleled outdoor connection through 4.4m high ceilings and steel-framed windows, illuminating the interior from all angles, promoted by the unique architectural style and former life as an industrial fashion house.
A masterclass in ingenuity, the home's blue cave accommodation will inspire undisturbed rest, with unique 'spouts' positioned to capture the light reflecting from the blue-hued Venetian plaster. Sumptuous curves add a whimsical yet sophisticated edge, leading from each cave bedroom into a shared bathroom with floor-to-ceiling tiles and a marble vanity. A contrast to the soft curves and soothing hue, the 'white nest', or entertaining zone, offers a wealth of sleek, floor-to-ceiling 2Pac storage in a crisp white tone, designed for work, play and rest with intelligent reading nooks, built-in desks and a bar area.
The artistry continues into the main bedroom, with a private mod-style ensuite with a freestanding bath and custom robes. An exceedingly private dining domain sits at the rear, where a caterer's kitchen with premium appliances, stainless steel benches and a vast 1920s utility lift offers everything you need for lavish events or intimate meals.
Neighbouring the famed Adelphi Hotel a short stroll from Flinders Street Station and with revered commercial zoning, this centrally located residence simultaneously saves and highlights the space within with pocket and pivot doors, with the comfort of hydronic heating, a powder room, secure intercom access, two lifts, a rear stairwell and a large laundry.
