Smartly Designed Bathroom for a luxury  Penthouse

The 212 Fifth Avenue apartment in New York City has been converted into 48 residences with the help of Helpern Architects and the interior design was helmed by Pembrooke & Ives. The luxury Penthouse comprised of two bathrooms and a power room. Being named as one of the “Top 100” interior design firms in the United States by Architectural Digest, the interior firm has received multiple awards for their works, including Showboat’s  “Best Retrofit of the Year” and Mountain Living’s “Home of the Year”. With such remarkable achievements, the team had been tasked to design this luxurious private residences on Fifth Avenue. Here’s a glimpse of the smartly designed bathrooms in this luxurious Penthouse.

The Master Bathroom

Designers Pembrooke & Ives have brought a new language in design to the bathrooms. Their responsive approaches towards design resulted in effortless and comfortable spaces that are synonymous to the brand’s design philosophy. The bathroom maker wanted to create a sense of harmony that would convey the promise of pure indulgence. In terms of materials, the Thassos stone flooring and the custom fluted Carrara marble walls took centre stage. Also, generous dimensions allowed the designers to create a suite comprising a lavish freestanding white solid surface Lacava tub to match the wide “sycamore vanity”.

The Powder Room

The powder room features the floors and walls constructed of stormy grey travertine to exude a sense of grandiosity and sophistication. Inspired by the exotic formations in Turkey, the designers stated all the building materials including the Roman minded deposits of travertine that were used to build the temples, bathhouses and amphitheaters such as the Coliseum.

The Second Bathroom

Designed to echo the well-crafted interior of the first bathroom and keep nothing less than the rate, the second bathroom was constructed to present a modern feel. The details of this bathroom showcased an array of simple, well chosen elements such as the use of small rectangular grey marble tiles that graced the walls. What’s reveals is a clean yet subtle visual texture.
