A 450 m2 two-level penthouse in a new development gives enough room to the most daring space-creating ideas. A part of a nineteenth-century neoclassical-style building, renovated to house offices, shops, lounges, various services and apartments, it is located in one of the most prestigious neighborhoods of St. Petersburg, known as the Golden Mile.
The penthouse is home to a large family that needed to create the conditions for the undisturbed and autonomous dwelling of two generations — parents and children. The layout of the apartment looks like a turtle from above, which served as an inspiration for the design — an animal known for its longevity, safety, stability, harmony, innovation.
The principle of longevity is realized in the choice of high-quality finishing materials; safety is embodied in the use of smart-house technologies for extra security; stability comes in shapes, colors, textures and other details of the design that were chosen for their quality and sustainability. Harmony is created by the comfortable co-living of the family’s two generations . The latest technology and innovation serve here for their benefit in the long term.
