Project Type: Penthouse Renovation
Service: Architecture, Interior Design, FF&E
As a third residence, this Minnesota couple purchased a space that previously housed corporate offices on the top floor of a mixed use building, with amazing views of the St. Croix River. Forging a floor plan that eliminated any resemblance of offices and maximized the panoramic views, was the primary challenge and main goal for this stunning penthouse renovation.
This opulent transformation from drab commercial space required a wealth of insight and imagination to successfully complete. The finished result was a reward for both client and designer alike.
From first entering this award winning condo, the guest is greeted with a sultry sparkling elevator entry area complete with mud room and an office nook around the corner. The unique floor plan has a arching primary wall cascading the length of the space which creates unique shapes and vantage points through the entire penthouse. The kitchen is the heartbeat and cornerstone of this immaculate penthouse remodel and leads the way into an open concept dinning, living and entertaining space with panoramic views and a surrounding deck over looking the river. The penthouse is complete with a gold award winning Jack n Jill bed/bath for visitors.
However the crown jewel is the master suite which was designed around the couples enjoyment of spending time together on the river as they are avid boaters, so we wanted to bring this love into the bedroom suite, while still keeping the contemporary New York penthouse feel that they desired. With a balanced complexity that can almost only be understood by physically standing within this space, both client and designer couldn't be more pleased with the finished result. So, we gladly take a bow for the design challenges of renovating this once commercial office space and creating a uniquely functional master within the sweeping gradual arch of this clients pseudo "luxury yacht" master suite. With the luxurious extras you would expect for a sophisticated couple like this wonderful duo, we included prep height counters, fire wall features, two kitchen bar counters, a home bar, an elegant living room, spectacular power bath, and a hidden theater room. The perfect penthouse.
