The floor plan inside was revamped removing unnecessary partitions and creating more room for the new entry living area and other public spaces. The color scheme is neutral with a white backdrop being energized by exposed wooden ceiling beams and rustic surfaces that usher in ample visual and textural contrast.
Designed by David Howell Design the luxurious penthouse is spread across three spacious levels and is nestled on top of a building with an original cast iron façade – an iconic image in itself!
The double-sided fireplace draws its inspiration from the exterior façade as concrete bricks also end up adding textural contrast to the modern setting. Smart décor and a neutral color palette complete this delightful residence where the homeowners might just end up spending more time outdoors than inside!
The old kitchen was turned into an informal second entrance and workspace while a smart custom staircase next to the dining area also holds tiered storage closets that allow the homeowners to keep the interior far more organized.
As is the case with most modern renovations it is large sliding glass doors that get the job done with the new rear of the residence getting a large window with a distinct black frame. Despite this beautiful makeover not everything here is brand new with the exterior brick façade and striking features like the fireplace in the living room being preserved carefully.
The delicate balance between a contemporary home that offers ample privacy to those within its confines and still manages to allow them an unabated view of the scenic landscape is a hard one to accomplish.
Nestled atop a hill and overlooking a breathtaking landscape the striking contemporary home stands out visually from the front even as its green roof allows it to blend into the natural landscape. And seeming to float over the hillside is the amazing pool that also comes with a cool solar deck covering!
