This Boston penthouse's winding staircase not only showcases its ultra hip style but allows for an uninterpreted city view as one climbs each wooden tread to the second floor. Other remarkable and interesting features are the modern cafe table in metal and glass placed underneath the stairs and the gorgeous console chest and artwork that diverge from the all-white color palette.
The neutral-hued kitchen of this Boston penthouse allows the view out its windows to play a major role in the decor. Simple ash brown pendant lights hang above the counter and sink areas, while the oak cabinetry features a gray wash finish that blend well with the selected flooring. White walls and countertops complete the contemporary design.
Step outside this Boston penthouse apartment and feast your eyes on the private patio area that parallels its indoor loveliness. Simply designed patio furniture in gray metal, with bright blue upholstered cushions, is a comfortable addition to the space. The designers of Haddad Hakansson used large stone tiles for the floor and added a light blue stone wall for privacy. The blue colors used throughout is an outstanding choice to blend with the glass windows and outside environment.

Designers focused on clean lines and sleek fixtures in their redesign of this Boston's penthouse's master bathroom and used a subdued white and brown color palette for a unified look. The single sink vanity, mirror, and modern wall sconces tie in with the tile flooring and and the material and trim used on the walls and in the shower stall. And, the dark brown, textured shower wall panel is a showstopper.
This Boston penthouse, redesigned by Haddad Hakansson Design Studio, correlates its view with each feature of the home. Shown here, as night falls on the city, diners can bring its ambiance right to the table; the simple lines of the furnishings and subdued color palette unite with the architectural profile of the cityscape.
To create a mudroom, designers moved the back entrance of the home to create a place for storage. Each cubby was custom build to make the most of the previously useless space that had once contained plumbing and utilities for this and other units.
