The clients wanted an urban and less car-dependent lifestyle, so this 4300 sqf contemporary penthouse seemed perfect. The space was exactly what the architects wanted, a blank canvas which they can tailor to the clients’ needs. The result is a beautiful, modern home with a semi-open-plan, with fluid yet distinct private and public areas.
The architects created a superb gallery-passage which is clad in white glazing panels and contrasting the walnut floor tiles. An interesting screen was commissioned by Ken Gangbar, that delineates the gallery-passage and living area. What’s more the expansive living area presents a double-sided fireplace which is the focal point of the room.
All in all, the Yorkville Penthouse is a great place to entertain family and friends. With its sleek kitchen, gorgeous gallery-passage, lovely bedroom with his and hers en-suites, this home is a dream come true. A sanctuary to retreat to, this apartment will leave you speechless. What do you think?

The secret lies in the interior décor. It’s important to know how to intelligently use the space you have available and to make the most of it. A tiny apartment can be a very lovely home and that depends on how you use the space and what type of furniture you include in your design. In this case, for example, in order to at least create the impression of a larger space, the walls have been painted white throughout.
In addition to that, the large windows let in lots of natural light and this contributes to an overall airy and bright décor. Also, some of the furniture pieces are white as well as this maintains a continuous and coherent image. As for the style, the furniture and the décor in general are simple. The lines are clean and lack complicated patterns, the colors are harmoniously combined and not numerous and there’s a sense of openness in all the rooms.
It’s mostly because there aren’t any robust pieces of furniture and everything has been kept to a minimum. For example, the bedroom lacks a dresser and instead it features wall-mounted hooks. A bed and a cozy chair complete the room.In the living room, the storage problem was solved with the help of open shelves, stacked like the steps of a ladder. The decorations are few and they’re also simple. Each room has a subtle focal point. For the living room, that can be considered the beautiful Butterfly chair while the bedroom focuses on colorful pillows.
