Sleek, modern barstools mix with traditional architectural details in this crisp, clean penthouse kitchen. The kitchen opens into the adjoining living room and benefits from the room's copious natural light. Meanwhile, glossy finishes reflect light and make the small space feel open and airy. Stainless steel appliances echo the polished chrome used in furniture elsewhere throughout the penthouse, unifying the spaces.

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.

In this sleek, renovated penthouse, the design team kept intact the living room's intricately carved ceiling beams, which were designed by the home's original architect, Leland Bryant. The beams articulate the cathedral ceiling and draw the eye downward to the living room’s art-lined walls. The space features an original fireplace, as well as a sofa by modern furniture designer Milo Baughman. A pair of velvet and chrome armchairs were designed specifically for the room by architect Tim Barber to add color and anchor the tall space.
