Whitney Mixed-Use Building

Orchid Icon  Orchid
  Interior Design

The contemporary open-floorplan, three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom homes seamlessly blend modern aesthetics, functionality, and luxurious features. The homes are accessible by a private, coded elevator or attractive floating glass staircase. The exposed ceiling beams immediately catch your attention as you enter the homes. These and other architectural features add a touch of character and visual interest. A highlight of the homes is the floor-to-ceiling sliding Fleetwood doors featured in each living room. These expansive glass doors blur the line between indoor and outdoor living by connecting the interior with the large private patios, allowing the natural light to flood into the space, creating an airy and open ambiance. The open kitchen is designed for both practicality and style. It features a large stone waterfall island, providing ample space for cooking, food preparation, and casual dining. The kitchen design is complemented by high-quality Miele appliances. The Italian cabinets offer both functionality and a touch of elegance. The homes’ three-and-a-half bathrooms are designed to exude modern elegance. High-end fixtures and finishes are used throughout, creating a spa-like atmosphere. From the sleek vanities to the luxurious walk-in showers and bathtubs, every detail is carefully crafted to provide a sense of relaxation and luxury while offering a harmonious blend of style, functionality, and comfort.
