SkyBar (below, left) is a
small lounge with a marble
bar counter and wooden backlit cabinets. The adjacent
SkyLibrary (below, right),
includes an eight-seat reading
table. The focal point of the
clubhouse is SkyLiving
(opposite, top), which offers
full kitchen facilities, a 16-seat
dining table, and lounge areas
for gatherings. The third-floor
lobby (opposite, bottom two),
which features a concierge
stationed at a marble counter
backed by gold-colored
mailboxes, acts as a transfer
area to elevators that access
upper levels.

as the focal point of the clubhouse on an
overhanging corner of the 28th floor with full
kitchen facilities and a 16-seat dining table for large
dinner parties. A smaller lounge area called SkyBar
accommodates 12. SkyLibrary, with tall inset
wooden shelves, has an eight-seat reading table
and other small-group seating options. A gym
is adjacent to a 25-meter pool with a swim-up bar.
Transparent and surprising
Overall, the nearly 10,000-square-foot clubhouse
is "kept open and transparent," says Wagemans,
"with a few glass partitions and sliding doors,
resulting in surprising spaces with spectacular
views of the city as a backdrop."
Within the clubhouse-as well as the groundfloor entrance lobby and the third-floor residential

lobby, both of which Concrete designed-materials
and furnishings are sophisticated, welcoming,
and eclectic. Striated travertine is carried throughout
the interiors, linking the entrance facade with
the clubhouse stories above. Honed gray granite
flooring appears in the first- and third-floor lobbies
and in the clubhouse, including the pool deck. Bright
accent pieces, often in rich reds and vibrant greens,
punctuate the neutral palette of grays, browns,
and cream. Lighting alternates between recessed
and track, complemented by eye-catching fixtures
such as the round copper pendants that adorn
the third-floor lobby and SkyLiving area.
Outside of the clubhouse, Skypark's
most distinctive feature-the Grand Staircase-
rises alongside a monolithic travertine wall, creating
a special gathering space with spectacular views
of the city. Accommodating planters, cushioned
stepped seating, and ambient lighting, this bleacher
structure leads upward to the 7,400-square-foot
SkyLawn, where an array of plantings, bamboo-lined
nooks, barbeques with preparatory areas, picnic
tables, and a grass lawn comprise an unexpected
green space.
Poised high above the active streets
of Mongkok, the clubhouse, Grand Staircase,
and SkyLawn are undeniably dreamlike yet utterly
modern. Indeed, says Chan, "We always like
to create surreal experiences." c
