"Interior finishes are designed with a modern, precisely detailed aesthetic, emphasizing the quality of each material, its detailing, and how together they create an extraordinary light-filled series of spaces and vistas north and south over Hollywood and the Hills."

Aside from the first floor unit, each unit is provided with secure, direct elevator access similar to a New York loft. Within each living room is a dramatic double-height space, its elliptical form encircling windows stretching nearly sixteen feet high.  Sliders at this opening provide fresh air and views over the adjoining balcony, with designer pendant lights drawing the eye upward.  Grey-stained wood flooring extends across the entirety of the unit, linking each space with a warm, welcoming texture and hue.  Windows along the entirety of the east and south facades extend from nearly the full 8' 5" floor to ceiling, opening out to ample balconies which create a unified experience inside and out.  Doors throughout the unit extend upward to seven feet, creating a more dramatic series of apertures between each room, with chrome plated modern lever hardware.  Each unit features a powder room near the entry way, and a library space rounds out a capacious set of public spaces.   Recessed LED lighting dots the ceilings overhead, creating specific zones of warmth and light within the larger space. Modern sconces extend along the hallway at the units' center, drawing the eye onward. Each unit will have dual zone HVAC and tankless water heaters.

The units' kitchens are highlighted by modern finishes and appliances, open to the larger living room and dining areas to maximize space for gathering and entertaining.  Appliances will be by Thermador or similar, with a built-in refrigerator and freezer, microwave and oven, five-burner gas cook-top, dishwasher, and glass-front under-counter wine refrigerator.  The kitchen back-splash incorporates operable sliding windows, filling the space with light and views.  Cabinetry is high gloss lacquered white with integrated finger pulls and a concealed vent hood for the cook-top creating a highly minimal, modern look.  Counter-tops throughout are high gloss white quartz, including an ample island with waterfall edge, central sink and food preparation area, and space for bar seating opposite with three designer pendants overhead.  Each of the spaces is pre-wired for A/V including in-room sound, video, and lighting automation.

Each unit features a full master bathroom, a second bathroom with walk-in shower, and a powder room. Within each bathroom, rectified matte charcoal grey porcelain tile stretches from the floor to walls, arranged in a staggered pattern which emphasizes movement and the interplay of solid and void.  Small details like the shower's base are detailed so the floor extends without interruption to the interior the shower, combining with floor-to-ceiling glass, chrome-plated clips and ladder pulls to emphasize the continuity and size of the space within.  Operable windows high in each shower provide ample light and natural ventilation as well.  High gloss white wall-mounted lacquered bathroom cabinets float above the floor, with polished white quartz counters and integrated pulls.  Chrome fixtures and bathroom accessories are carefully combined with the larger space, including wall-mounted faucets and vanity mirrors with integrated LEDs.  A standalone tub anchors the western end of each of the master baths; sliding doors to the adjacent balcony create a luxurious opportunity for indoor-outdoor relaxation.  

The design of each unit also incorporates significant storage and utility spaces, including LG washing machines and dryers with adjacent milllwork for storage and folding, a coat closet adjacent to the entry, two pantries within the kitchen, as well as a dedicated utility room for additional storage and location for central network, phone and cabling. Space has been allocated in the subterranean garage for 9 parking spaces per code and bicycle parking with additional potential storage space for each unit.

A large master bedroom is located at the western end of each unit, with views from large floor-to-ceiling windows to the north and west.  Twin walk-in closets are provided for the master bedroom, as well as an additional walk-in for the adjacent second bedroom.  A third bedroom can be utilized as a den or office.  Each master also opens onto its own outdoor balcony, providing a more private space for enjoying the view.  

While each of the units have access to individual balconies and floor to ceiling sliding windows, the penthouse unit stands out. Here, in addition to exterior balconies and floor-to-ceiling windows, large clerestory windows draw light into the living room and m
