Perched on the 15th floor of the Millennium Tower and washed in city views and light, this designed condominium home by Olson Kundig is a contemporary showpiece, balancing a softened modern aesthetic with exquisite, detailed finish work perfectly in tune within its urban setting.
Signature architectural features found throughout the home thoughtfully highlight the craftsmanship involved in the design and define the quality of this residence, beginning with the industrial size patinaed bronze front door, completely unique to the unit. Additional bronze accents are subtly repeated throughout the home in cohesion with the overall vision. The formal entry, clad in a spray of gray stone tiles is a peaceful introduction to the space. Built in bench seating backed by concealed storage anchors the stairwell that leads to the second floor.
Access to a generous covered outdoor deck area expands the entry way footprint, which gracefully transitions to newly refinished walnut flooring in the main living area. Spilling open to double height ceilings, the entire room is dramatically framed by a grand surround of windows, offering expansive city views that cut east through downtown, with covetable sight lines to the Smith Tower and Elliott Bay. A lofty, double—sided fireplace centered in the room creates ambiance and a natural separation between the living, dining and kitchen areas. Discreetly tucked around the corner, a coat closet and powder room in muted tones for guests and main floor use.
Sleek and polished in gray and white tones, the kitchen provides ample space for gatherings of all occasions. The modern edge of the home is further enhanced by the clean lines of Pedini custom cabinetry topped by inky quartz counters. A full sweep of countertop begins with an under mount Franke metal sink capped with a Dornbracht faucet. Cabinetry across the back wall of the main kitchen space is artfully framed by a sheet of solid cut painted glass allowing light to reflect throughout the interior. A center island provides an additional work surface, including seating for informal dining options and Miele and Thermador appliances crown the space. A home office with built-in desk and cabinetry just off the kitchen rounds out the main floor.
Upstairs, luxurious wool carpeting in cream tones softens the corridors and sleeping quarters. The primary suite is a soothing sanctuary waiting behind an industrial size door. The city seems touchable through floor to ceiling windows and a black out velvet curtain provides privacy when necessary. A clever pocket door on the far end of the room opens to a small balcony overlooking the main floor below, capturing light and views from the space. Organic stone and warm wood cabinetry dress the en suite bath, with spa-like features including a drop in bathtub with stone ledge surround and generous walk-in shower with bench seating.
Down the hall, the secondary bedroom and en suite bath are serene accommodations for family or guests. Around the corner, a sitting room is outfitted as a reading space with built in shelving behind sliding glass doors and accommodations for various electronics. A laundry and utility room are just off the entertainment space. The unit also features surround sound that extends to the outdoor spaces, automated window treatments to control light flow in the main living area, and in the building, two tandem parking spaces in the building’s underground secure garage and expansive storage room assigned to the unit. A modern luxury residence on the threshold of the city’s core.
