A three-storey penthouse with views overlooking the lake and city skyline. It is the home of a family who entertain frequently, so it was necessary to create public areas that feel special, providing a generous but intimate backdrop for parties and dinners. By contrast the more private areas are like a retreat for the family.

Loft Cube

Location: Turin, Italie

Project based on the concept of a transformable loft in a traditional apartment thanks to the “Daniela Scared” sliding panels in walnut, which can divide the individual rooms or, if left open, create a unique environment fully accessible with no doors or barriers.

The complete circumnavigation of the apartment around a central body, consisting of bedroom, kitchen, bathroom and laundry, allows panoramic views of the mountains and the Mole to be the main object of a scene made of glass and windows. The fully glazed living room is divided into three zones, zone sofa and dining area on the same level, while the TV area gets up to thirty inches on a wooden platform hosts a bookcase resting on the ground and through the use of cushions becomes a sofa to read books or watch TV in the underlying relaxation.

Steps in black American larch, stuck individually on the wall of the hall that leads to a loft consists of a second bedroom with cupboard with sliding doors in black sisal, and bathroom area.

The use of the resin in the floor stems from the desire to approach the concept of loft that makes all the objects resting on the floor neutral, predominant elements on the volume that contains them. Raised sleeping area by a collection of fifteen cm wall paneling always walnut by “Daniela Scared.”

Master bathroom with bath and sanitary area housed in a volume of natural oak and stone in which insinuates a shower of glass and resin. White lacquered kitchen through the hallway that connects to the dining table. All this surrounded by a beautiful terrace that surrounds the entire villa at 360 degrees.

BRAND STORY


Since its 1995 inception, the Kelly Wearstler Studio has grown from boutique interior design firm to global lifestyle brand. Driven by the signature aesthetic and idiosyncratic spirit of its creator and namesake, the Los Angeles-based company boasts a diverse range of modalities, taking an all-encompassing approach to design that includes everything from residential and commercial interiors to lighting, fabrics, furniture and home accessories and highly-anticipated limited-run gallery editions.

Over the past two decades, Wearstler’s protracted reach as a designer has expanded exponentially, designing multiple international hotel properties – including luxury hotels for the Viceroy brand and the new Proper Hotel Group – as well as grand residences from Beverly Hills to the Caribbean and around the globe. Her robust portfolio includes collaborations and partnerships with some of the most respected global brands across the luxury market space. A dual collaboration with landmark department store Bergdorf Goodman in 2006 saw Wearstler lending her exacting eye to both the popular seventh floor restaurant and her own eponymous boutique.

Renowned for her distinctive alchemy of soulful mixology and buoyed by an A-list client roster of leading names in music and entertainment, the Wearstler aesthetic has become synonymous with modern California luxury. Her designs, epitomized by a colorful mélange of materials, merge important historical reference points with contemporary influences. The harmony of masculine and feminine, classic and contemporary, high and low, is integral to the brand’s maverick sense of eclecticism and fearless, iconic style.

The Greenwich Hotel TriBeCa Penthouse by Axel Vervoordt + Tatsuro Miki

The TriBeCa Penthouse

A sanctuary high above the corner ofGreenwich Street and North Moore Street.

We want to express a tribeca character in the most humble way, because the architecture is so simple, it belongs as much to the past as to the future,” says designer Axel Vervoordt.

tribeca-bed21-1600x995The TriBeCa Penthouse was created by Belgian designer Axel Vervoordt and Japanese architect Tatsuro Miki, in close collaboration with the hotel’s partners Ira Drukier and Robert De Niro. The 6,800 sq ft suite was inspired by the TriBeCa neighborhood’s industrial past fused with the ancient Japanese aesthetic of Wabi.

tribeca-hall1-1600x995The Penthouse design incorporates the philosophical beliefs of Wabi: beauty found in imperfection and authenticity; Artempo – where time becomes art; and poor materials that are rich in spirit.tribeca-living31-1600x995tribeca-kid-bed11-1600x995tribeca-ext21-1600x995tribeca-bed41-1600x995tribeca-fireplace1-1200x1600tribeca-ext31-1600x995tribeca-bath12-1200x1600Sustainable design is echoed throughout the interior and exterior space. Materials like stone, steel and reclaimed wood were carefully selected and thoughtfully utilized in every area of the penthouse.


Floorplans

The Penthouse offers a large open floorplan with multi-purpose living spaces, including a separate living room and drawing room, a full sized chef’s kitchen, three fireplaces, two and half bathrooms and three bedrooms. The private outdoor gardens on two levels span over 4,000 sq ft and feature a spa pool and dining for 18 guests.flr1flr2

Loft in Berlin by Santiago Brotons Design

Berlin / Allemagneeebb5824-d458-4ded-ad91-09f3e7d7b9abThe penthouse is located in a picturesque little street, just close by Ku-Damm in Berlin. The total surface is 320m2, including 3 terraces with amazing views over Berlin.

Since penthouses of this kind are very rare in Berlin, we decided to emphasise these features and create a male and elegant feeling. Key to achieve this kind of styling are the amazing partners that we had the pleasure to work with for this projects: Muun provided beds, Bocci the amazing light installations, Hygge Interior the smaller accessories, Norr11 the outdoor furniture as well as the sofas, tables and chairs and also the awesome art is by Isabella Trimmel

We focused on natural materials such as leather and steel, and added soft fabrics to lighten it up. I always like to work with black and earthy colors, it gives every interior a cool elegance.

The big open space, the beams and the beautiful windows, and of course those brick walls and all the different ceiling heights.

The art is created by talented Isabella Trimmel. Many of her pieces have a visual effect that change depending on how the light hits it, something very suitable for this flat with its many windows. Durning the day, when the sun changes its position, each piece will look differently. Most of the art is placed on the floor because of its size. I find it really cool to show the art on the floor, it gives this New York look together with the exposed brick walls that I love and find inspiring.

The amazing lamp sculptures from Bocci! They are a piece of art and perfect for this space. We added them to special corners, where they brought the best out of the space.fee9109e-95ae-4f9b-8093-67cef7360cae52067855-79a8-4031-bf7c-6dbf31ef286d7c87bb49-c247-437d-8667-9be9029d9a21b03333f6-6c2b-4dd7-9ea8-cace74293ba97c4f3927-7fa3-4be9-b974-0180ee5376a85199e79c-eb9a-4b11-aa9c-f1b3039f5e51107b3498-be4f-4400-9afb-9283b26a6b7e

Square Compositions Penthouse by Pitsou Kedem Architects

Tsamert Complex, Tel Aviv, 2015

Pitsou Kedem Architects
Design team: Pitsou Kedem , Hila Sela
In charge architect: Hila Sela
Styling for photography: Eti Buskila
Photography: Amit Geron


0e0071a8-ab56-4716-b99a-8f36389e9bb1.jpgFour consecutive corner apartments in a building in the Tsamert Complex in Tel Aviv have been combined into one spacious apartment. The interior design is simple and consists of two public levels that also contain two private levels.

The apartment’s entrance is through the lower level, which contains the kitchen, dining area and a large double sized living area. The entire level is also surrounded by a balcony. In a similar fashion the penthouse floor is designed as an upper living area with a large salon overlooking the balcony and a swimming pool and a kitchen and bathrooms. The effect is of two different and separate living levels that make possible a range of social activities and interactions at one and the same time.

Between the two public spaces, we find the private areas – bedrooms and work areas that also have their own, private outside spaces.

The physical connection between the spaces is made possible by the use of elevators and stairs. These are designed as a pathway that looks out over the seemingly ever-changing design – a topological framework in white that seems to rise and fall, following and enveloping the internal walls, floors and ceiling bringing together the facets of the prism into a deceptive and gravity free space composed of patches of white and shade. A patchwork of clearly defined lines, like a plant creeping up a clear trellis.

The envelope’s panels are emphasized to bring out the white from its neutral, flat boundaries into the space’s monolithic effect – like a piece of sculpture that catches and presents the space. This nullifies the need for any additional design elements other than those that light and accompany the space. These include the lighting elements, which provide natural light, and the staircases, also designed as a white prism that is both flat and expanded. The topographical white is further enhanced by the large, orthogonal glass walls that cast a myriad rays of light differing in their shade and brightness.

Next to them, we find a wall of linear translucent glass panels that act as a Japanese rice paper room divider that identifies the space without cutting it off from the totality. The use of glass also adds and emphasizes the white, creeping framework and adds an additional dynamic created by the people moving through the space. In a similar fashion movement and views in the space are also emphasized by the work areas and sitting areas that are placed by the stairways as terraces that both observe and are observed.

The careful selection of materials and hues is also evident in the apartment’s other elements such as the floors and the furniture – monochromatic, reserved and deep – that surprise the viewer as they envelope the light and the brightness. The space is full of fragments of naturally appearing light and shade in yellow and grey hues that appear as a compact, stable and uniform unit. Despite it being almost completely exposed on all its sides, the invasion of the outside urban environment is seen in a restrained, organic and non-threatening fashion.

Pitsou Kedem Architects Studio

Pitsou Kedem Architects Studio opened in 2000 and today consists of 11 architects. The studio is responsible for the design and planning of many projects in Israel and lately, also in Europe.
Pitsou Kedem set up the studio after finishing his studies at the Architectural Association School of Architecture (AA). The studio’s design language and concept is founded on the modernist style and his work encompasses the values and principles of the period as well as the design philosophies of the modernist movement.

During its formative years, the studio was involved in a constant dialogue with the fundamental principles of minimalism: reduction and moderation, clean lines for each element, separation of structural materials as part of the process designed to avoid the irrelevant in order to emphasize the significant and refining and seeking out the essence of the space.

Together, all these elements lead to a strong architectural concept that is uncompromising in its search for the absolute truth, in its pursuit for purity of form and shape and in its goal of achieving a spatial perception of comfort and tranquility.
This constant quest for simplicity leads to sophisticated and precise elements which , in turn, contributes to their uniqueness.

The majority of the studio’s projects can be characterized by simple geometric, rectangular and recurring shapes that impart an exact and interconnecting look to the structure and its spaces.
Structural facades are uniform, mono-chromatic, devoid of all decoration and provide a feeling of being almost monumental in nature. By using this architectural and design language, we attempt to bring order to urban chaos, For the past years, the studio has been searching for new materials, for a fresher approach that will allow us to enter new territory and step outside of recognized and boundaries. After years of simplifying materials to the extent avoiding all distractions that created those pure moments when “emptiness” disappeared and the individual sees and feels all that they failed to see and feel before, we began to add layers of materials and spatial layers. Inevitably, these layers created increasingly ambiguous and illusory spaces within the structure, layers that, in turn, created a greater sense of curiosity.
A great deal of effort was used in our research for new materials, and in particular, for materials to be used for building external structures and walls. In its ongoing search to deepen and expand its architectural and design language and to add new contentment, the studio has, over the past few years, been working with contrasting materials such as weathered steel and exposed concrete on the one hand and carbon and other new and innovative materials taken from the world of industrial technology on the other. The combination of different materials and different architectural and design languages and even, on occasion, different schools of design, created, in many projects, a surprising and dramatic tension.

The studio designs projects covering a wide range of sizes and complexity. From the interior design of restaurants, stores and living spaces to the design of private residences – usually those spreading over very large plots – and recently, hotels and residential complexes.
In all of our projects we consult closely with the client and “brainstorm” in our efforts to discover the story, the concept, that flash of inspiration that will lead to the project’s design. The nucleus of an idea, leads to the development of the design language and concept which then leads to the development of spaces which serve the users – whilst all the time, placing an emphasis on the context and the integration of the building into the urban fabric.
The studio has, over the years, been awarded many prizes including, for the past seven years, the Israeli Design Award. Our designs have been showcased in many professional journals and magazines around the world as well as on leading architectural web sites.
Pitsou Kedem has mentored graduation projects for the Faculty of Architecture at the Technion, Israel and lectures regularly at all of Israel’s architectural faculties.

Rosen Penthouse by Eleven-Studio


Architect: ELEVENSTUDIO
Location: Bordighera, Italy
Year: 2015


26985e_64191d9f15454a68b0c4179c6e5da1c7The renovation of this 80-sqm-apartment located on the last floor of a traditional early ‘900 English villa has used a very linear design as a frame for an eclectic mix of modern, ancient and ethnic details.

 The designers found a space that had been strongly transformed during the last renovation made in the 80’s. Revisiting the stylistic choices made in order to lighten and de-materialize the existing structure, they tried to create back a dialogue with the traditional architecture.

The massive wood stair has been replaced by a very linear white resin structure which gives back fluidity to the space, connecting the ground floor to the first floor and creating a much more dynamic space.

The floor of the wide common area has been entirely covered with a strong texture parquet while the room is marked by light play which incorporates the kitchen while subdividing functional areas.

 Some ethnic details, remembering the origin of the owner, create colorful touches while the old iron heaters strengthen the personality of this penthouse.

The arrangement of lights, mirrors and furnitures also permits to enjoy the wonderful view on the coast from every position in the apartment.

 Finally the first floor is characterized by very intimate and warm rooms. The bathroom more precisely has been completely realized with very dark colors while the led lighting follows the emotional feature that has led this entire project.

Pano Penthouse by Ayutt and Associates design

PANO Pano Penthouse

Interior Designer : Ayutt and Associates design

Landscape Designer : Ayutt and Associates design

Construction area : 600 sq.m.

Location : The Pano Penthouse, Bangkok, Thaila8d1e60_ff7362c7b6ae491a9c332042ad8287bbThe PANO Penthouse is at the 53th – 55th floor of a high-end residential tower in Bangkok which is the fourth highest apartment in Thailand. AAd (Ayutt and Associates design) designed this penthouse under the concept of “living between the city and the nature” offers a modern lifestyle with luxury and relaxation with panoramic views towards the historic Chao Phraya River. The Penthouse was specially developed for a single family in need of a place to combine privacy with socializing living space.

 The PANO has been designed as unique private house in the skyscraper. It provides private outdoor spaces which similarly perform as urban houses on-ground, including terrace, garden and even swimming pool. In the case of this triplex interior design, most public facilities are located at the main 1st level and top level, while private functions, such as main bedroom, guest room, kid room, working space and bathrooms, are situated on the 2nd floor.

 The concept of fluid and dynamic spaces are the mainstream of the entire project and has been applied for all levels and space. The elegant and exceptional terrace, punctuated by a tree incredibly planted at the 53th floor of a residential tower, allows a nature and panorama view that enhances the relationship between the interior and exterior, and provides an opportunity to bring in a large quantity of daylight indoor. It is the result of a large-scale of architectural modification applied to the original layout of this penthouse. It is clear that the gardens around the private space are not only aimed at enhancing visual quality, but also at encouraging family and friend to move around and generate social activities between them. The aesthetic of this space is a place of dream accompanied by a sense of nostalgia. In terms of occasional domestic lifestyle in Thailand, the apartment generates the recreational area for family as does the luxurious houses, and includes the benefits of the view of Bangkok skyline, and represent a quiet place away from the stresses and complexity of the city.
