Inside and out, this luxury house design is dressed to impress! Created by Arch Interiors, this award winning million dollar penthouse features the glamorous, urban interior design you might expect from Christopher Grubb, not to mention this coveted location atop The Residences at W Hollywood. But what’s quite unexpected here is the lack of bedroom – and with this spectacular, over-the-top games room, who has time to sleep? In place of a bed, the custom designed game table that will have you counting poker chips rather than sheep. Add to this four flat-screen televisions, custom linen gaming chairs, a putting green, a cantilevered buffet and two dozen of your closest friends, and you’ve got yourself a party! This contemporary luxury home is definitely one to see. Check it out.
Fun and games aside, the luxurious 12G penthouse offers plenty of high-end, no-nonsense drama. “Priced at $999,000, penthouse 12G includes luminous elements, such as twinkling aluminum tile, wallpaper with subtle shimmer, Balinese seashells wrapped around structural columns, and unique lighting – all meant to convey the glitter of Tinseltown,” according to Arch Interiors. A dark, rich palette of greys and blacks, hand-blows glass pendants overhead, rich woods and velvet seating, this is truly the lap of luxury.
“I wanted to create something extraordinary and unexpected that would speak to those seeking a youthful, cool, urban experience,” says Grubb, who designed this penthouse for someone with a penchant for a grownup version of a child’s playhouse. “While another resident might place emphasis on a lavish bedroom, the owner of penthouse 12G is someone who lives for entertainment. They possess both the desire, and the means, to be playful and bold.”
When not used to host blackjack or poker games, the table serves as a swanky formal dining table. The starburst tabletop is an ever-present centerpiece. Sliding glass doors usher you from the living and dining room to the patio overlooking the Hollywood Walk of Fame 12 storeys below.
This small but sweet retreat features an alfresco sitting area, a putting green and a fireplace feature.
Spacious for a balcony, this outdoor living area is finished with rich wood floors and lined with mirrored glass walls that leave sight lines open from inside out to the horizon.
But you don’t have to sit outside to take in the skyline! Continuing from the outdoor terrace into the living area, the shimmering silhouette of the LA skyline complements the reflective tile, chrome and mirrors adorning the stylish urban suite. Furnishings are easily reconfigurable within this vast space to accommodate small or large gatherings.
The living area is open to the kitchen and the horizon alike. The open concept home is ideal for entertaining.
Within this open space, the kitchen is defined by the espresso-colored wood cabinets, which offer organized out-of-the-way storage for every culinary must-have, from the wine fridge to the dishwasher drawers. The breakfast bar, finished in the same dark wood and reflective aluminum tile, raises casual dining and entertaining to new luxurious heights. The trio of colorful pendant lights lining the bar are like art overhead.
This space unfolds before the floor to ceiling, wall to wall glass overlooking the balcony and city skyline.
This wood built-in feature wall isn’t your typical wall storage system. The geometric maze of wood winds its way around a few carefully selected pieces of display.
Of course, with a view like this, it’s hard to focus on “stuff.”
The bathroom boasts a glamorous style that inspires primping and prepping. We love the rich browns – a uniform shade that injects some interest with the use of various textures and finishes, like the faux-fur wallpaper.
The deep tub invites long, indulgent soaks while admiring the vibrant pop art overhead.
Even the powder room delivers a healthy dose of drama in its rich, dark palette; a damask wallpaper; and the heavy granite topped vanity cradling the gold-lined vessel.
“The result is one fun and amazing space,” explains Ron Barnes, sales and marketing director at The Residences at W Hollywood. Penthouse 12G reflects the energy of the iconic urban neighborhood below, providing a sophisticated backdrop for unforgettable gatherings truly indicative of the luxurious W lifestyle.
