During the extensive renovation of this Hollywood penthouse condominium, the design team restored the doorway onto the balcony, as well as the original openwork columns and railings, creating a beautiful space to overlook the famed Chateau Marmont and surrounding Hollywood Hills. Located off the penthouse's kitchen, the balcony was previously accessed by a screen door and the ironwork showed significant signs of wear. Now, it's a relaxed, lovely and fully restored spot to unwind and enjoy the view.
To achieve an open floor plan in this pie-shaped condominium, designers removed walls to give a clear line of sight to the public spaces in the home, creating a spacious and open downtown entertaining space. To maintain the stylish, modern design, HVAC vents were concealed in the columns in the space, keeping the home functional and sophisticated.
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.
This media room does triple duty: first as a media room, with plenty of shelving to store DVDs, books and CDs; second, as an office, and third as a guest bedroom. A stylish and practical Murphy bed folds down over the couch to give this minimalist apartment extra functionality without sacrificing style.
The elegance of this modern kitchen is highlighted by the sculptural range hood, marble backsplash and waterfall countertops. These elegant features help to accentuate the beautiful views of the Boston cityscape that spreads out beneath the condo.
