"Planeta Design Group recently designed a spacious, 10th floor, three-bedroom unit in Boston’s Seaport District for a couple looking to trade suburbia for city life. This waterfront penthouse, with 180-degree views of Boston Harbor, features a private outdoor terrace that makes the perfect space for a waterfront lounge, elegant bathrooms, custom-built furniture, and stunning artwork, making it a one-of-a-kind residence.

Drawing on the view, PDG set out to create an environment filled with calm, but not without drama. The architecture is neutral in colours, reminiscent of the water and surroundings, but features texture and reflections to give it an undertone of energy. The transformation begins in the entryway with a dramatic black-and-white marble slab leathered for softness and re-arranged in a graphic pattern underfoot to immediately make an artful statement. From there, you come upon a powder room and a versatile den/guest room/home office outfitted in aubergine-coloured wallpaper by Hermès and a glass desk so as to not take away from the view. 

Next, you enter an open-concept room that encompasses the kitchen, living, and dining areas. Clean-lined furnishings, reflective polished stainless-steel details, and transparent pieces, including a glass credenza and a Roll & Hill chandelier, play up the spaciousness of the floor plan, while shades of grey with underlying blue tones echo the scene outside the windows. Conscious that the family was moving from the suburbs, PDG maximized hiding spots throughout the unit, designing sleek white-oak cabinetry for the living area for linens and a hidden AV closet. 

A sleek built-in bar and a pair of full-size wine refrigerators live in a dark nook across from the kitchen, which was created by relocating the entrance to one of the bedrooms. A plush master suite evokes a feeling of calm with extra pops of colour with a closet wrapped in a smoked glass and metal frame to reflect light and a Poliform shelving system to create a walk-in closet with backlit shoe shelves."
