    Default On a Hillside in Macao

    The apartment is on the top floor of this building, called Edificios Panoramos.

    The living room has track lighting, and sliding doors lead the way to a long, narrow balcony overlooking other towers on the island of Taipa.

    Yea, the whole 'hillside' thing was misleading, but its a hell of a space imho.

    Great space; can I have that leather couch, please? Looks so elegant. I would like to see the view, if there is one and I'm assuming there is.

    The space looks okay, but it's just so dang dark in there. The location is probably less than spectacular.

    macau is hot, humid and tropical most of the year. so maybe this would be 'dark and dreary' in colder regions but if you live in a place that's really sunny and hot, you want your house to be cooler and not get as much direct light.
    i learned that when i moved to chile - it's fucking sunny and hot most of the year, and sunny and warm during the day even in winter. the last thing you want is a place that gets a ton of sunlight otherwise you're looking at astronomical air-conditioning bills or a horribly hot greenhouse effect sauna for a place. my place is surrounded by trees and would be too dark if i was still living in europe but for here, it's perfect. it stays cool and i don't even need a fan in summer because of the combination of not too much light + thick walls.
