This Berlin Penthouse by Lecarolimited is Lined with Abstract Luster

You don't need to choose between boxy rooms and open plan when configuring a large rectangular living space. This Berlin penthouse by Lecarolimited proves that there is yet another way to simultaneously expose and section off a dynamic program.

Without using screens or dividers, the studio opened up two whole sides of the apartment's first floor while concealing the bedroom and bathroom block for added privacy. Despite the openness along the length of the flat, there's an enclosing intimacy that breaks up the different functions of the space through the clever arrangement of the walls.

As if this Berlin penthouse by Lecarolimited was not bright enough with its floor to ceiling fenestration on its perimeter, the architects installed a mesmerizing veneer of distorted geometric mirrors that reflects light and an expansive spatial impression throughout the living areas.
