My clients were looking to capture the beauty of the surrounding North Vancouver area, as well as blend their various homes and backgrounds together for a truly personalized style direction. Since it is a penthouse we also wanted it to have a level of luxury and richness, which we brought in with the velvet fabrics and Walnut veneer through out.
The clients are from North Vancouver and Guatemala, and they live part time in Los Cabos Mexico. I took inspiration from each geographical location in order to determine the material and colour palette; earthy tones, clean minimalist lines, warm textures, and a moody undertone using black accents, something the clients specifically requested.
In renovating, we were able to retain the original kitchen boxes and replace them with new doors and countertops. For symmetry a tall cabinet was added to the left hand side, making the kitchen focal point balanced, adding some much needed cabinet storage.
For the rest of the space we did a light face-lift of new paint, doors, hardware, new light fixtures, and some plumbing fixtures. The electric fireplace was also removed and replaced with some framing and a linear style electric unit, and quartz stone hearth below. All new furniture and furnishings were added inside, and outside on the three outdoor decks.
