To create a dramatic effect in this apartment, designers enlisted the architectural concept of the enfilade, a series of rooms that open into each other, to emphasize the length of the apartment. The series of doorways is what guests see upon first entry to the apartment.
This compact, transitional kitchen features fun elements that reflect the homeowners' personalities, including modern barstools, sunburst accents and two-toned cabinetry. A wall-mounted TV is a luxurious, functional touch. An enfilade adds drama to the entry and creates a lovely lead-in to the space.
The crux of this dramatic penthouse design is set on contrast, as a black and white color palette anchors the space. To help connect the lounge space to the rest of the home's elegant design, designers replaced the apartment's standard doors with custom, heavy doors that were painted black. They also added black casings around each of the doors to create a uniform look throughout the enfilade.
