Kitchens - LAMINATE Perle, WOOD Oak

Transforming a penthouse in Berlin


In Schöneberg, Berlin, a young couple set out to transform their 120m2 penthouse, looking for a renovation that combined functionality with subtle touches of color, especially focusing on the kitchen to make it the focus of their space. Passionate about art and wanting to take advantage of the natural light that flooded their home, they faced several challenges, including how to create a bright and spacious environment that also offered ample storage solutions without compromising aesthetics, and how to renovate the solid wood flooring to maintain its charm and durability.

To address these challenges, they opted for a layout that divided the space into two levels, locating the daytime areas on the first floor and eliminating partitions to allow natural light to expand freely, creating a sense of spaciousness and continuity. The kitchen was designed in an L-shape with a central island, intended not only as a space for cooking but also as a place for gathering, facilitating interaction and becoming a central point for socializing.

The choice of materials and finishes played a crucial role in the realization of this project. A LAMINATE Perle was selected for the kitchen cabinets, complemented with ROUND handles and WOOD Oak fronts, bringing a natural warmth and elegance to the space. The countertop, in porcelain tile, was chosen in neutral white and to give a touch of color, pink was used on the countertop. Island storage was maximized using drawers and a bar with stools was included, perfect for enjoying quick meals or as additional space during meetings.

This project illustrates how, through careful planning and detailed material selection, a space can be created that balances functionality with personal style.
