Essential elements of luxury penthouse design in Bangladesh
Here are the essential elements of a luxury penthouse:
- It must give you good privacy from the outside.
- It must have great views of surrounding areas.
- It must be able to create a high-tech lifestyle if you want to.
- It must have enough space to allow you to have guests and parties.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at the things to consider when planning penthouse design.
How important is luxury for you?
Penthouses will automatically come at a premium. Whether it’s the simple real estate or the design process, you will have to pay a good price for it.
And the entire point of having a penthouse is the luxury factor.
The things like a little extra high ceilings, better appliances, fixtures and accessories, larger open spaces – do you really want those?
If you don’t, it may not make sense for you to go for penthouse design.
Can you handle the attendant inconveniences?
Yes, penthouses come with their share of inconveniences. Remember, you are on the roof of a reasonably tall building.
For example, if there is a power outage, you might find it very difficult to get to the ground floor.
Transporting furniture will become difficult.
You have to be prepared to face problems like these in a penthouse.
Does the building have a history of leaks?
As a unit on the topmost floor/roof of a building, penthouses are more vulnerable than most to weather damage and leaks.
Plus, the rooftop mechanical systems on top of a house – like the cooling towers, compressors, HVAC, boilers and so on – are another potential cause of damage.
So, inspect the building and its history carefully before making your choice.
Do you have a problem with breezy outdoor spaces in your house?
Remember I said a penthouse must have a reasonable outdoors part?
Well, as the penthouse is at the top of a house, that outdoors space can receive a strong breeze, maybe even a wind from time to time.
In the context of the climate of Bangladesh, that may prove a problem during summer and winter.
Can you take steps to deal with that?
Can you handle basic maintenance of the outdoor spaces?
Due to the outdoor nature, they will receive more dust and dirt than the rest of the penthouse.
Now, professional cleaners can handle that, but they would have to move through your penthouse, spoiling your privacy.
So you may have to handle the cleaning on your own.
How to discuss these issues with your interior designer
