Listed for the first time since its meticulous completion in 2007, this penthouse represents a magnum opus of interior design and architecture, created as a collaboration between noted interior designer Gregory Carmichael and architect Rick Sundberg of the then Olson Sundberg Kundig Allen Architects (now Olson Kundig Architects). It is a singular statement of sublime detail, construction and disciplined architecture, set amidst the crossroads of Seattle’s most dynamic neighborhoods, and capturing unparalleled views of the city and its surrounding natural beauty.
Offered for sale as a turn-key residence, the penthouse comes completely furnished in bespoke pieces designed to perfectly compliment its interior surfaces and details, creating an atmosphere of cohesive, uncompromised luxury and calm. Drawing from a palette of rare, slip-matched afromosia veneers, rift-sawn oak, honed limestone, patinated bronze and fabricated steel, the designer and architect have forged an interior that offers timeless references to Northwest nature and aesthetics, while establishing an ingeniously transparent framework for the city’s most dramatic and exceptional outlooks.
In one of Seattle’s original residential high-rises, set toward the north end of Belltown and situated to allow for panoramic views over all of the urban core, Puget Sound, Pike Place Market, and the Olympic Mountains to the west, and Lake Union, Seattle Center, the Space Needle and Cascade Mountains to the north and east. Because of its early construction, the tower enjoys surrounding zoning that protects many of its views by limiting the heights of neighboring buildings, yielding a uniquely wide-angle outlook over Seattle.
Of particular note is its unobstructed view of the Space Needle that creates aperture-filling images of Seattle’s most renowned architectural monument. Indeed, the setbacks of the building are such that views can be treated as primary art in its penthouse, with two stories and over 1,500sq. ft. of outdoor patio space to make them all the more enticing.
In all, this is a residence of perfect harmony that both stands equal to its spectacular surroundings and allows for them to be a defining factor in its design. Simply put, Seattle and all of its surrounding natural beauty are allowed to resonate as an all-encompassing and ever-changing work of art. This is a singular opportunity to acquire the ultimate in urban Seattle.
