This sleek penthouse in Boston’s Back Bay was literally born out of fire: the building was struck by lightning, and the upper floors were completely burned out. H+A worked closely with the client on both the architecture and interior design, turning the fire-ravaged space into an open, modern home that supports serious cooking and entertaining. The serene space is punctuated with punches of rough texture from artwork and antique furniture, and a custom stair leads to a roof deck with sweeping city views.
Monochrome concept family room dominated by black and white. The large glass windows have a beautiful view of the city covered by elegant transparent curtains. Minimalist furniture is part of the concept, an L-shaped sofa in white combined with a natural black coffee table in the shape of wood that attracts attention. The long minimalist fireplace embedded in the wall is also the center of the warmth of the room.
From the living room, direct access to the kitchen and bar, still with the same nuance, creating a harmonious unity, namely the minimalist concept of monochrome. The kitchen with black cabinets and white marble is neatly arranged, supported by bright lights that make the kitchen area bright and clean. Bar tables and bar stools match the black and white color and simple modern minimalist concept.
A different concept appears in the dining room area. The white color of the room is combined with retro brownish orange furniture. A long dining table made of wood with thin iron legs and a dining chair made of brown orange leather which has an attractive design to attract the attention of the room. This color tone lends a warm, fiery feel to the room that provides an outside view of the city through the large glass windows. Ethnic style wall decorations are detailed on one side of the wall.
The bedroom returns to a modern minimalist concept with a slightly different color tone. The white color dominates with a touch of brown as a detail. The bedroom has direct access to the bathroom with sizable glass sliding doors. The dominance of white is still visible in the bathroom but it goes well with the elegant ivory white marble. The lighting is laid out in such a way that is a beautiful highlight in this very spacious bathroom.
