Penthouse Apartment in a House by Krueck & Sexton Architects

This minimalist apartment is located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA. It was designed by Krueck & Sexton Architects and completed in 2009. The apartment covers a 6,500 sqf area and it was designed in three parts. First, the contractor wanted to make sure there will be a space designed for entertainment. Secondly, there also had to be an every-day living area and last, a retreat where family and friends could get together and spend quality time.

The space needed to be visually open, to have plenty of natural light but to also provide a sense of privacy. This is actually a penthouse apartment so there was plenty of space to do all that. Because of the location, you get the sensation up being up in the clouds. That’s what inspired the name of this apartment. It might not get you on cloud nine, but you’ll be close enough.

The two levels are functionally divided into a living volume and a more private level situated above. In between, the stairway provides a void in the middle of the space and also an opportunity to let the light to infiltrate inside through the glass walls and windows. As for the interior design, it’s very simple, even minimalist. The colors used are mostly neutral tones and the result is an elegant and stylish décor.{pics by William Zbaren and found on archdaily}
