The concept of the penthouse had to create a calm atmosphere, where attention is paid to the mass of the architecture and a soberly tinted use of materials.
Overall woodwork, the kitchen island, and the bathroom are quite robustly designed with a largely architectural undertone. The broad, massive larch parquet, the soft, gray and natural clay plaster, the beige limestone, and the darkened, soft-aged oak veneer form the sober material palette.
The powder room’s washbasin has been processed almost floating in the open space. The design in black marble with a weighty character contrasts the floating aspect and hidden construction. A similar principle is repeated for the kitchen island, where the dining table is a fragile shell and folds out from the robust base that supports the sink. The bathroom is completely made of limestone and thus reinforces the monolithic character of the space. It is sculpted as an incision from a larger whole, creating a void and functional space. Daylight radiates locally and selectively into the wet area, for the preservation of intimacy.
