About Penthouse T

Objekt Architecten was tasked with designing a captivating third-floor duplex penthouse. Subsequently, they crafted a residence that evokes the elegance of a luxury yacht. Moreover, the sleeping quarters are situated below the living spaces, allowing residents to escape the daily grind.

Seamless Indoor-Outdoor Living

Ceiling-high, frameless windows on three sides offer a near-360-degree (360°) view of the surroundings and the lush roof garden. Consequently, they seamlessly connect the indoors with the outdoors. Additionally, a rugged floor finish with wide joints enhances this cohesive integration.

Multifunctional Design Elements

A rounded walnut volume in the living space houses various concealed storage and utility functions. Furthermore, it also serves as a partition, separating the different living zones. Behind this volume, a hallway links the kitchen to the intimate TV room and library.

Harmonious Spaces

The reception area, featuring a de Sede sofa and a high-pile rug, is visually divided from the dining space by a floating Gyrofocus fireplace. The dining table, crafted in Belgium, comfortably accommodates guests. Overhead, Astep pendant lighting completes the ensemble.

Culinary Haven

Adjacent to the dining area, a semi-professional kitchen in stainless steel boasts a light pink AGA cooker, creating a dream space for the aspiring home chef.

Serene Sleeping Quarters

A walnut staircase leads to the more intimate sleeping area, where a warm, wellness-inspired atmosphere prevails. This level houses a bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, a laundry room, a toilet, and a multipurpose room with a hamam.

Harmonious Integration of Wellness

Throughout the penthouse, the design seamlessly integrates a wellness-inspired ambiance. From the soothing wooden wall paneling and atmospheric lighting in the night hall to the neutral color palette and custom walnut cabinetry in the en-suite bathroom, every detail contributes to a holistic, relaxing experience.

This Penthouse T in Ternat, Belgium, designed by Objekt Architecten in 2023, offers its residents a luxurious oasis that blends indoor and outdoor living, multifunctional design, and a harmonious wellness-inspired atmosphere.
