Contemporary Classical, Buenos Aires Penthouse Triplex

Korn Interior Design was hired to do the Interior Architecture, the Interior Design, the Construction and the Project Management for this exclusive 15,000 square foot penthouse on two floors plus rooftop in one of Buenos Aires’ best neighborhoods “Palermo”. This penthouse has stunning views of the River Plate, the Rosedal Park, the Palermo Racetrack, and the Palermo Polo Fields. Our vision for our client, Gabriela Sabatini, an Argentinean tennis champion and her family was to completely modify the floor plan, adding new rooms, and areas, modernizing and improving the flow and functionality of this penthouse triplex. This was achieved through an extensive exercise of stripping out and demolition work throughout 100% of the existent apartment, to ultimately create a sumptuous, sophisticated and luxurious apartment with Classical, Deco and Modernist influences.

The penthouse has expansive reception areas, a formal dining room,a family dining room, a bar, a double living room area, a winter garden with custom-built two-tone-marble arcades hiding the perimeter window frames, a media room, three master bedroom suites, two guest bedroom-en-suite, a gymnasium, a home office, a solarium-spa with custom-built marble arcades and a sliding transparent dome roof, a huge eat-in-kitchen,a laundry room, and double maid quarters.

The design scheme benefits from exclusive marble and granite floorings and walls, “Versailles” designed wooden parquet floors, custom designed “vitraux”, exotic wood paneling, all seamlessly integrated with custom designed furniture, special ceiling treatments, an intelligent lighting project, and cutting edge technology. Additional highlights include a gorgeous bespoke staircase with floating black granite steps and a bronze handrail, as well as custom painted “trompe-l’oeil” murals, and engraved glass walls.

Project Description Contemporary Condo, Sunny Isles, Florida

The brief of this Sunny Isles Beach vacation residence for an international family was to transform a traditional condo layout into an open space plan, comfortable for a family with young children while at the same time suitable as an entertaining space. Our design also integrated the family’s growing art collection.

The wife wanted to see her small children while she worked in the kitchen and living/dining room area. The husband wanted to have a small work space connected to the kitchen. This was achieved through an extensive exercise of stripping out and demolition work to ultimately create a luxurious open space.

Neutral natural tones blend with rich glossy white surfaces and stainless steel accents to create a light, sophisticated open space. Combining classical luxury and comfort with contemporary modern twists and functionality, Korn Interior Design transformed this apartment into a modern and luxurious home

Contemporary Minimalist Penthouse Rooftop Project, Sunny Isles, Florida

Korn Interior Design, Inc. worked with our client’s vision for this penthouse triplex rooftop. Our client was captivated by the essential simplicity of form and color of the iconic island of Santorini, with its white washed villas a top its volcanic cliffs, and wanted to create his own ‘Santorini in the Sky’ in Miami!

To capture the essence of Greek Island architecture, and to compliment rather than compete with the dazzling beauty of Miami’s azure skies and turquoise ocean views, Korn Interior Design, Inc. raised a large area of the roof to create a curved terrace area providing clear, spectacular views over the perimeter walls.  The successful ‘formula’ of the Greeks’ color palette, consisting of roughcast white walls with accents of Cerulean blue and bright red – provided by flowers – was faithfully followed.

The rooftop includes a dining area, a bar area, a solarium, a Jacuzzi,a big fountain, a large bar, a full kitchen, a barbecue, a full bathroom with indoor/outdoor showers and various cushioned sitting areas.

With the risk of hurricanes always looming in Miami, most of the permanent ‘furniture’ on the roof terrace was constructed from lightweight concrete to obviate the need for constant removal during the Season. A storage room was created to store the few elements that are not attached to the structure.

Korn Interior Design, Inc. welcomed our client’s dreams to create this unparallel rooftop.

Project Description Contemporary Minimalist Penthouse Triplex, Sunny Isles, Florida

Korn Interior Design, Inc. was inspired by our client’s Euro-minimalist aesthetic for this 7,000-square-foot penthouse triplex in Sunny Isles Beach, Florida, with 270 degrees wrap-around balconies in two levels, and a 1,500-square-foot rooftop, with views of the ocean, the Intracoastal waterways, and downtown Miami & Ft. Lauderdale. Our team worked from the pre-construction stages with the building architects andthe developer to ultimately create a luxurious open floor plan layout, very different to the original developer’s proposal.

The large main living floor seamlessly blends several ‘functional areas’; a large open kitchen, a bar/entertainment station, dining area and a lounge/TV theater – each ‘delineated’ by direct or indirect lighting and/or architectural elements such as the barrel ceiling in the theater and various wall and ceiling soffits. The design is ultra contemporary with clean lines, sleek surfaces and lack of clutter.

Using an exceptional selection of materials, architectural elements,dramatic lighting effects, and the latest technology, our team created a magnificent space which reflects an understated minimalist luxury aesthetic, in an interplay of comfort, modernity and elegance.
