A REFINED PERSPECTIVE
Designed to elevate your outlook, architecture engages in panoramic views at every opportunity. Residences start at level 8 presiding across the treetops, then ascend to the upper levels to sit within a sweeping city skyline.
High function kitchens partner generous living zones in a singular statement of premier style and purpose. Created for entertaining and daily dining, the performance enhanced design also acts as an inviting social space and the heart of the home. Superior Bosch appliances include wall oven, gas cooktop and rangehood and a Bosch or Smeg dishwasher that are discreetly integrated within expanses of floor to ceiling joinery. The space is minimalist and relaxed with soft grey joinery to conceal ample storage including deep, soft close drawers and thoughtful pantries. An expansive mirror splashback increases a sense of dimension within the space and becomes a reflective backdrop to the open shelving and brushed metal finish rangehood that adds another level of sophistication.
A restorative space to bring a sense of calm to your daily routine, the bathroom uses inviting and sophisticated textures and tones to enhance a sense of natural beauty. The floating, deep storage vanity, expansive mirror-front cabinetry, frameless shower and slimline fittings lighten a design grounded by the pronounced use of terrazzo features and large format textural tiles for a refined urban accent. Select polished gold tapware for a feeling of warmth and luxe or choose bolder matte black contrasts to bring contemporary edge to a classic design. Open shelving adds decorative detail and allows for adding a personal touch to each space.
Consisting of 48 floors, Paragon limits four to six residences per floor with two penthouses occupying the top level. Amenities not unlike those of a hotel take up two of the development’s floors and include spas, saunas and steam rooms. With verdant greens and serenity in vogue, the development is home to a three-storey urban forest in a conservatory-like feature.
