The penthouse was remodeled by interior design firm Jamesthomas. Originally, this space was occupied by two smaller apartments. They were unified and transformed into one big space. Lots of structural changes had to be made. Converting the units into a single large space required removing some walls and partitions and restructuring the whole place. The layout changed and so did the interior design and décor.
