The Hotelier's Penthouse

4-Bedroom Apartment / 300 sqm / 2014

The works of Donald Judd – the pioneering American artist known for his utilitarian ideas on art and the environment – inspired the interior design of this penthouse. Strong and clear structural insertions accentuated the architectural simplicity and abundant natural light of the space, the better to showcase the owner’s art collection. The heart of the apartment is the living room whose furniture offers varied seating arrangements. A built-in feature wall – an homage to Judd’s principle of progression – is carved from travertine slabs laid on metal sheets that are supported by vertical wood structures to create a storage system of sculpted lattice cubes.
