This beautiful 3-Bedroom Penthouse takes place in the GREENPOINT Condominium building, designed by Lubrano Ciavarra Architects, 2018 AIA BQDA Merit Award winners for the project.
This 1,520SF spacious home has a layout cleverly divided. The main coming-in area is the public part of the house with a living room and a kitchen with dining. From this area there is immediate access to the terrace, while the private zone is on another side of the axes.
The night zone consists of the master bedroom and two rooms, bathroom, and a terrace that runs along the side of the apartment.
The main feature of this space is its relationship between forms and materials, colors and patterns used. Due to the adequate distribution of its elements, a visual composition is created that can be appreciated from different sides. At the same time, it conserves symbiosis and harmony about its elements, characterized by the contrast of warm and dark colors.
The intimate area of the project is characterized by the dominant use of warm tones, optimizing the lighting in the space and at the same time creating a comfortable atmosphere.
The playfulness of the lines present in the finishes and furniture gives visual continuity to the project, in addition to subtle textures.
In this way, GREENPOINT PENTHOUSE is conceived as an interesting project in terms of interior design and distribution, where its elements are related both in functionality and aesthetics, providing identity and character, a perfect fusion of contemporary art, chromatic work and elegance.
THE LIVING ROOM features a modern furniture selection of Roche Bobois Profile “Large 4-seat Sofa“ upholstered in “Cabaret Blue Velvet and Pouf”, a pair of mid-century modern armchairs suite in “Off White Linen” with ash framework.
