Luxury Penthouse: Nesting Nature

Penthouse Pfekuto is a pied-à-terre for a family to facilitate their frequent visits to the city. Designed by Conarch Architects, New Delhi, this is a lively and a dynamic project - a multi-level penthouse with 8000 sq ft of indoor area and 6000 sq ft of outdoor space spreading across three levels. The design vision is centred on transforming generic apartment units into a functional, versatile and inspiring living space that honours the clients’ needs and reflects their lifestyle.

The client aspired to have a spacious home and the designers had a smart solution. Two separate apartments on top of one another were combined into a luxury penthouse and further ownership rights were acquired to the high rise tower’s terrace for private use. One will be awed to know that one apartment is primarily designed as a master suite with a private workspace, a guest bedroom and sit out area. The second apartment, internally connected with the first one, includes a spread out indoor and outdoor living area, kitchen and three bedrooms. Explaining about the concept, Ar.S.K. Goel, Principal Architect, Conarch says, “Connecting the two units internally had a major advantage of passive ventilation. The staircase opening between the levels acts as a chimney and assists in releasing hot air from the window openings at the upper floor, inducing natural air movement in the apartment. This restricts the need for mechanical air conditioning to extremely hot days.”
