The client loves to read and amassed thousands of books over the years. It is therefore no surprise that the brief for this 2-storey penthouse was to create more and introduce as much storage as possible. We achieved this by reconfiguring the staircase thereby creating more floor space on the upper level and designing concealed storage throughout the penthouse to hold his impressive book collection. The original timber flooring on both levels were dark stained and dark wood was used for the custom-designed millworks to give a warm cosy relaxed feel to the modern bachelor pad.
