A HOUSE BECOMES A HOME
A Bright clean design and open layout is the theme in this Shaughnessy penthouse, feeling like more space than its square footage betrays. A concise concept from both the owner and architect, this project was mainly custom built with inspiration driving our choices as we went. Inspired features include the kitchen island that is one solid piece we brought in by crane, and a laundry room beautiful enough to live in. The main bathroom is a design wonder on its own, and the deck has an incredible view whether you're gazing at the cityscape or the stunning green wall.
