The Yorkville Penthouse, located in Toronto was designed by Cecconi Simone for a young couple that needed a place to incorporate perfectly the idea of home and business. “This home epitomizes restrained and exquisite contemporary design while being warm, comfortable and welcoming. Located on a half floor, the home has west, north and east exposures.” Black and white, a little bit of concrete and a piano – this is how you create an interesting contrast to fit the couple’s exquisite tastes.
The penthouse was divided in three main areas: the entertainment area, the private area and the interior courtyard. Each of these areas have different functions, depending on the couple’s needs. An imposing fireplace welcomes you in the living room, embroidering the living space with sprinkles of subtle decorations. The white-and-black elements create a certain peaceful ambience. The penthouse respects the lines of a truly minimalistic décor: the all-white kitchen, the “almost empty” bedroom and a hollow chamber with water falling on the walls opening up to a green space. Sometimes this is all you need to find your inner peace after a hectic weekday schedule.
