Greg Ling and his team have transformed this 250-square-metre, four-bedroom apartment into an uncommonly spacious bachelor pad, with panoramic views of Victoria harbour and the mountains beyond one of the apartment’s key features.

Ling employed dramatic details throughout, like the curved and sculptural ceiling detail and a curved marble boarder running along the perimeter of the floor. Natural elements such as stone and warm timber flooring are offset by fine bronze detailing, and the client’s love of Palissandro blue marble means the sophisticated material appears throughout the home from the kitchen door handle and marble border to a full-height feature wall and the entire elevation of the master bathroom. The design team even cut the marble into smaller pieces that imitate ceramic tiles.

An eclectic mix of furniture includes pieces from Poliform, Giorgetti and Minotti. The client’s antique nineteenth-century snooker takes pride of place in the living room, complemented by a Saint-Louis vibration chandelier, while a bespoke light sculpture by Lasvit hangs above the dining table.

A set of hidden doors swathed in a softly textured wall covering hide the entrance to the master en-suite space, which comprises a bedroom, walk-in wardrobe, study and bathroom, and existing walls were replaced by partitions comprising cabinets and sliding doors. The master bedroom acts as a miniature art gallery, featuring contemporary art by Futura Dos Mil, Yasuo Sumi and Toshimitsu Imai, as well as original prints by Yoshitomo Nara.
