Studio P Interiors have been shortlisted for Cityspace – Global Award in The International Design and Architecture Awards 2020.
Tasked with renovating a penthouse unit on the 76th floor, Studio P Interiors were given creative freedom on their client’s first multi-million dollar home. Integrating their design into the wider environment, this apartment has been given a very contemporary urban interior in a very contemporary urban city – being in the heart of downtown Toronto. The penthouse reflects the sense of a young successful professional who lives in a big urban centre.
The brief was to renovate the 3000 square foot penthouse, which presents a very spacious layout, but the basic finishes had the client wanted more from this space. Studio P Interiors performed a full renovation of the home, and gave the client a residence with modern and chic furnishings, finishes and fixtures throughout. Custom ceiling mouldings, wall panelling, custom storage solutions, and contemporary furnishings and art throughout the interior gave the client a personalised design experience with modern, thoughtful elements. The custom kitchen with bold contrasting tones, ideal walk-in-closet with brass accents, back-lit shelves, and glass enclosed shoe shelves, a floor to ceiling bar with metallic finishes, and the introduction of pattern and texture through a variety of abstract and edgy wall-coverings add luxury and intrigue to the contemporary foundation.
The custom built-ins became the designer’s favourite aspect of the project, as they add functionality and value to the home, but also are very interesting and unique to the space. A lot goes into designing these bespoke pieces, and Studio P Interiors were able to experiment with layering different materials, textures, and colours. The custom ceiling mouldings also added interest to the varying ceiling heights with a largescale pattern of hexagon and diamond shapes through painted mouldings – in the living room the marble faced fireplace is the focal point, but the eyes are draw upwards due to the vertically running tiles.
Phase 2 of the renovation focused on the ensuite bathroom, several custom built-ins throughout the home, finishing off a guest bedroom and a playful home office. For the ensuite, Studio P Interiors renovated the shower and incorporated a freestanding stone bench and niche. The designers also created a custom make up vanity with a unique linear pattern and plenty of drawer storage, complemented by the blush ombré drapes to finish off the ensuite space. Custom double doors and trim were installed and finished in a soft pink to open onto the walk-in-closet. Studio P Interiors chose to go bold for the office space, with a large-scale gallery wall wrapping two walls, a stone face fireplace, custom swivel armchairs in a terrazzo print fabric, and a full height storage unit with slab doors; a luxurious yet functional space with an upscale femininity, perfect for the successful bachelorette client.
