This 17th floor condo was large and spacious, but otherwise nondescript. Its best feature was a wide view of the Monongahela River, punctuated with bridges against the tree-covered hillsides. Our challenge was to create a series of defined, but interconnected spaces that made the most of these tremendous views and abundant natural light. Core rooms without windows are illuminated by transoms over three-quarter high walls.

The main living space is anchored by a kitchen at one end that features dark cherry cabinets with stone and glass countertops. The room’s perimeter is delineated by wood window seats that match the kitchen. This outline of built-ins, coupled with a freestanding fireplace, allows for multiple furniture arrangements within the larger room.
The condo’s material palette includes a variety of stained and painted wood finishes, contrasting wall colors, glass and porcelain tiles, stone, chrome and painted glass.
