Penthouse Duplex at The Metropole by FORMA Design

Penthouse Duplex at The Metropole-01-1 Kindesign

FORMA Design was commissioned to re-design this corner Penthouse apartment at The Metropole Condominium, in the bustling Logan Circle area of Washington, DC. Their task was to improve the functionality throughout, update the finishes, custom design extensive cabinetry in the Living areas, Kitchen and Study, open up the space to the abundant natural light of the two-story atrium and bring the apartment up to par, in order to act as the backdrop for the clients’ extensive Art and Furniture collections. The textured stone walls are the backdrop to the custom quartersawn light oak cabinetry that houses the AV equipment and provides ample storage. The owners’ eclectic art collection and the modernist furniture are bathed in the natural light streaming from the two-story atrium windows.

The master bedroom suite on the upper level was opened up to a large sleeping area and a study area beyond, both opening onto the atrium that floods the area with light. Daytime and night-time blackout shades are electronically operated to turn the whole area dark for sleeping.
