This Manhattan penthouse was fashioned by a previous owner out of storage rooms, a one bedroom apartment and unused space in the building’s decorative turret. Foley Fiore Architecture were tasked by the current owners to remodel the space to update the home to include ample communal living spaces comfortable for a young family with two teenage children. The living room includes a stylish, modern fireplace with a ceiling-mounted daybed swing.
The wood ceiling beams, floating shelves and island all infuse the kitchen with warmth and give the space a natural touch. With light streaming in through the windows and plants all around, the room feels fresh and inviting.
This open kitchen is part of larger living room, anchored by a great stone fireplace. Looking around, one can learn so much about the family that lives here: they love to cook, find comfort in a roaring fire and enjoy curling up with a book in their tufted armchairs.
Because this farmhouse sink overlooks the courtyard, the owners can enjoy views of Mother Nature while they wash up after dinner. The sink comes equipped with an industrial-style faucet for extra functionality.
This is the back wall of the kitchen, as seen from between the islands. The designers wanted one wide wall with nothing on it but the three AGA ranges and reclaimed wood shelves. As a personal touch, the homeowner asked the builder to use the most worn planks he could find!
The living area of this Manhattan penthouse includes separate zones for watching television and gathering around the fire, making this a comfortable retreat in the center of the city for the family of four. Hanging daybeds enjoy the view of Central Park.
Small marble tiles draw attention to the curved bathroom wall that's tucked against this penthouse's mansard roof. Larger slabs of marble on the side walls and countertops offer a subtle contrast to the accent wall while wrapping the space in elegance.
A floating teak vanity creates a modern, organic look in this serene bathroom. A limestone countertop is matched to the large wall tiles that surround the room, and a chrome wall sconce adds a touch of glamour.
Opening the island's drawers reveals a Sub Zero freezer, which has been perfectly integrated into the cabinets. On the far back wall, a Miele coffee maker is tucked into a tall cabinet as well, with coffee mugs stored overhead.
A zinc breakfast bar matches the tones of the veining in the marble backsplash and lower counter for a sleek, modern look in this Manhattan penthouse kitchen. An unadorned window keeps the attention on the views of Midtown and Central Park.
With rustic wood beams, a pine island and open shelving, this kitchen is a dream for fans of farmhouse style. The pine island was actually adapted from a chest that the homeowner inherited, which gives the space even more history and significance.
