Dwell - New York Attitude

“It was a fantastic experience! We clicked straight away and in only a few days they were able to deliver a fully customised home with no fuss and no extra cost from architects and interior designers.”

New York Attitude


This customisation was the most ambitious of all undertaken by a new Dwell skyhome buyer. Nelson Duan had been in the local market for nearly two years before meeting Franco DiBartolomeo. Nelson had his heart set on a two-level townhome in the sky but could not find what he wanted.

Franco was able to facilitate Nelson’s dream home with the volumetric merging of two apartments. Nelson is thrilled with the finishes and how substantially unique the space is. “The builder/developer and his team of consultants allowed me to have an immersive role during the building of my new home,” says Mr Duan.

The townhome feels like a constant series of unfolding experiences. The dual entries offer privacy to the spaces as well as visual enjoyment. The central living zone has a dramatic ambience with a feature 6-metre high joinery white wall, Japanese sliding matt black framed doors and the double-storey void with abstract light pendant suspended brilliantly is seen through the glass balustrades and translucent floating timber staircase.
