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!
It is the view outside filled with rolling hills the sight of bright city lights after sunset and endless greenery that defines the pavilion-style upper level of the home where glass walls redefine the indoor-outdoor dynamic. Designed by Obra Arquitetos it is the dining room spacious living area and a classy kitchen in black and white that make up this floor.
When it comes to stunning natural backdrops filled with lakes glaciers and the breathtaking sight of the Alps all around it really does not get a whole lot better than the dreamy and magical setting of Sils im Engadin in .
To ensure that privacy is not an issue it is the lower level that contains the bedrooms and other living quarters and even here one sees the presence of cleverly placed floor-to-ceiling glass windows to offer a glimpse of the world outside.
The living room kitchen and dining room seem both spacious and cheerful as a flood of natural light coming through the skylights enlivens it. With a neutral color scheme and modern décor the focus here is more on framing the view on offer perfectly and ensuring that the interior plays supporting cast to the scenery.
It is fascinating to see the blend of contrasting textures throughout the home with specific features such as the fireplace wall and kitchen counter in concrete lovely oak finishes and even exposed timber beams coming together seamlessly.
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.
