This uncommon looking penthouse was designed by ALTUS Architecture+Design and accommodates a few impressive modern elements. With views towards the Minneapolis lakes, the condominium was especially developed for a young professional in need of a place to combine privacy with socializing living space. We have some information from the architects concerning the apartment’s structure: “The private master suite is created behind a curved white marble dust plaster wall that pulls one into the space.  A freestanding Burlington stone bathroom mass organizes the master suite and separates the bedroom area from the bath and dressing spaces..  Suspended cabinet elements of domestic and Australian Walnut draw one into the living room and kitchen spaces.  Stainless steel countertops and translucent glass walls create a progressive modern quality to the interior edges of the space.” We particularly enjoy how the spiral staircase that leads to the roof and garden above becomes the focal point of the living area, while creating a calm atmosphere of playful shades.
