Multi-dimensional Worlds of Marble
Type of stone: Natural
The designers' respect for the natural stone arises from every corner of this designer penthouse. Despite the selection of natural stones, with dominance, presence and a unique presentation, there is a harmonious flow in space. There is a pressure from it and onwards and what dominates the space is multi-dimensional. Large portions of the penthouse apartment were covered with natural stone.
The bathrooms were surfaced from floor to ceiling and one of the bathrooms included the façade of the bath cabinets and the basin, so that the overall view is of a stone mirror at the height of its splendor. Standing at a certain distance gives the appearance of a stone-lined space. An approach to the space shows the other layer: the three-dimensional. Suddenly, on the wall, which appears to be a one-dimensional marble wall, a hanging cabinet unit is revealed, also covered by the same material, which gives surprising volume and interest.
The use of natural stone in this project is unapologetic, very elegant and meticulous. A play of light exists in some of the stones, but it is not excessive. In the kitchen space and in the staircase that connects the two floors, a wall and a marble floor are covered with meticulous book match works. Fine and precise finishes can be seen, adding to the harmony. The two bathing areas are covered with marble, a view that reveals hints of gilded, refined metallic worlds, and an additional bathing area where classic marble was chosen to preserve a noble quiet. One of the walls in the guest rooms is covered with quartz stone in flaming shades, with light fixtures that give it, with its lighting, a rich and spectacular appearance.
