An unblocked vista that overlooks the city skyline and streetscape—one of the appealing factors of the city life is the uninterrupted views from the high vantage points that penthouses and luxury homes located on higher floors offer. While tasteful interiors set the scene for luxury living, a home enveloped by a panoramic perspective in an idyllic setting is priceless.
Not convinced? Take a peek into some of the most stunning city homes in Asia with vertiginous views of each city’s skyline.
1. A bungalow with breathtaking views of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
This elevated bungalow in Bangsar, Malaysia, offers a breathtaking perspective of the Kuala Lumpur skyline. Malaysian architect firm Design Collective Architects (DCA) designed the modernist home with a wraparound façade that starts along the north overlooking Genting Highlands, then east and south overlooking the city, before concluding at the south-west looking back towards Bangsar Hills.
Keeping the view in mind for the design of the home, DCA designed the living areas to align along the wraparound facade. Floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors open up to a large verandah and an outdoor living space, allowing the homeowners to relax and lounge with the panoramic skyline as a picturesque backdrop.
