The new penthouse at the Fitzwilliam in Dublin is where 'Bond meets Blofeld' in this new-build 160sqm two bedroom suite, designed with a view to a masculine but luxurious sophistication. A striking sculptural ceiling unites all the rooms and can be seen as a complex three-dimensional landscape in which sources of both artificial and natural light are exploited to effect.
From a private lobby on the 5th floor a dramatic stair leads guests to the upper level and into the principal reception area. A moody palate of materials sets the scene of an exclusive members' club; travertine, fired acacia wood and deep claret Chinese lacquer. A grand piano is located in one corner while at the other end of the room, at the touch of a button, a leather clad wall retracts to reveal a plasma screen with cinema quality sound system. An elegant pewter bar sits in front of a red lacquered wall behind which is a kitchen.
The master bedroom is lined with silk and cream leather. A wall of mirror fronted and maple lined closets provides copious storage and a chaise longue is strategically placed in the bay window offering views over the hotel's roof garden. The adjacent master bathroom is designed as a travertine haven for two with double shower, twin basins and vast elliptical limestone bath set before a mosaic mirrored wall to provide fractured and intriguing reflections. A second fully quipped shower room is provided en suite to the second bedroom, with secondary access for general use from the bedroom lobby.
