The Sky Residence at The Ritz-Carlton Residences at MahaNakhon

Privilege at Altitude

A powerful influence comes from classic Manhattan apartments. It is both imposing and vast at 430 square metres.

The scale brings about a dramatic tension. The David Collins Studio instinct for exquisite comfort balances this. Like a perfectly cut suit, the effect of the space is one of quiet assurance. Style, it is said, is what is remembered, and fashion is what is noticed. This is definitely an imposing residence that will be long remembered.

There are other notes present in the complex aesthetic composition of The Sky Residence. Cut against the debonair old Manhattanite confidence is the lighter energy of a contemporary East: an easy elegance; a delightful insouciance. A very now conversation on residential luxury.
