With limited windows, the design challenge in this 3,000-square-foot boutique condo suite was to integrate light throughout, while making the terrace feel like a natural extension of the inside space. It would also need to
showcase the homeowners’ eclectic art collection and accommodate their love of entertaining. To accomplish that, the designers created an open, gallery-like space featuring clean sightlines, sleek but sculptural light fixtures and an uncluttered, minimalistic design that brings the outside in while keeping attention on the focal point artwork. To accomplish those goals, the unit’s multiple columns and bulkheads would need to be integrated into the design, for a cohesive feel, and extensive millwork would have to be built in to keep everything hidden away. A monochromatic palette complements the colourful art, while durable taupe laminate built-ins and porcelain flooring are ideal for entertaining. To introduce natural light to all corner of the suite, metal-framed doors and walls were installed in both transparent and sandblasted glass, depending on the privacy needs of the room within.
