The first-of-its-kind penthouse is the epitome of urban grandeur, embodying luxury living with state-of-the-art furniture
If there’s one lesson to be gleaned from 2018, it’s that to live luxuriously, one has to dream big. And you can bet that our dreams will be bigger and more lavish than ever this 2019, which is why Robb Report Singapore has teamed up with one of the city’s leading property developers Hong Fok Corporation Limited to develop the very first Concourse Skyline Penthouse presented by Robb Report.
Of course, the high life comes at a price, specifically, an eight-figure price tag. But for those who are more than happy to shell out some loose change, the fully furnished home will be kitted out with a carefully curated selection of state-of-the-art furniture and products brought in by more than 20 luxury brands such as Montblanc, Lladro, Delonghi Group, Leica and Sarment amongst many others.
Keep your eyes peeled for the Six Senses Spa, which will take up a room on the ground floor. It will be solely dedicated to wellness and all things zen, so one no longer has to step out of the house for a much-needed pampering session.
The master bedroom is located on the second floor, along with an outdoor swimming pool that occupies part of the balcony. You’ll wake up to views of the pool, enticing you to take a dip each morning. But here’s the real icing on the cake: Couples who take their me-time seriously won’t need to share bathroom space, as the penthouse comes with his-and-hers walk-in wardrobes, twin sinks, a standing shower and standalone bathtub.
If you’re concerned about being the hostess with the mostest, all is solved with the penthouse’s ideal location. It boasts staggering views of Marina Bay Sands and the Singapore Flyer. Not only is the rooftop floor of the penthouse an ideal place to host parties and barbecue nights, it also serves as a vantage point to catch the exuberant city skyline.
Helping to transform the apartment into a grandiose, contemporary lair is The ID Dept., an acclaimed interior design company whose portfolio spans luxury residences such as Pearl Island, The Orchard Residences, Cairnhill 9, Oceanfront Sentosa, Goodwood Residence and numerous others. These creative folks will deck the apartment with highly bespoke furniture, some of which have been exclusively designed just for this project.
Take the matte black Soundwave bathtub from Kaldewei for instance, which will make its first appearance in Singapore at the penthouse. The bathtub, which acts as a speaker, uses a cutting-edge bath audio system that plays music when connected to a smartphone, tablet or laptop via bluetooth.
Art too, holds a place in the penthouse. At the private lift lobby that sits to the left of the penthouse’s main entrance, guests will be greeted by an installation comprising LEDs encased in golden tubes that are attached to narrow, carbon fibre stems. These stems, which carry movement sensors, will sway in the direction of the wind, reminiscent of a paddy field. The installation was awarded first place in the Lexus Design Awards 2012, and was subsequently presented during the Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan in 2013.

Of course, the penthouse will be home to numerous exquisite gems such as Nathalie Ziegler’s flower glass chandelier, which will be personally installed by the artist herself, and Ron Arad’s rocking chair, an elegantly sculptured piece that’s limited to 12 pieces worldwide. These two furniture brands are available on Affluency, one of Asia’s leading retail platforms for furniture and home decor by renowned international brands. A glass installation will also be suspended above the Yamaha GB1K grand piano in the living area, crafted by glass artwork designer Lasvit.
Concourse Skyline Penthouse presented by Robb Report is set to complete by the end of March 2019.
