Project: New High-Rise Home in Astoria Houston

project details

In a trend made possible by the “everything’s bigger in Texas” high-rise buildings in Houston, our clients side-stepped downsizing deciding to “upsize”. The couple chose to move up into the sky to enjoy miles of panoramic views leaving behind their beautifully landscaped oversized lot of their suburban home.

 

Almost 5,000 square feet with 14′ foot ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows revealing a 270-degree panoramic view, this Astoria penthouse would be considered downsizing by a rare few.

 

The Astoria rises 29 floors above Houston’s Uptown Galleria area with its myriad of award-winning restaurants, luxury shopping, and diverse entertainment. The coveted address was just the perfect landing place after a long, successful career.

the ask

The couple, though not downsizing in the traditional sense, did find challenges in finding a place for all their treasures they wanted to keep. Their goal was to create a well-organized, contemporary, and elegant home in the brand-new penthouse.

 

We created spaces with contemporary lines and opulent finishes and utilized eggersmann’s innovative solutions to maximize functionality and storage space.

the solutions

kitchen

The high-gloss handleless fronts throughout this tone-on-tone kitchen exudes Euro style. Though head-turning, the quiet palette does not detract from the views of this aerie.

Storage is maximized with tall wall cabinets and an expansive island that doubles as a casual dining spot. The all-Miele kitchen is ready for family meals or large dinner parties.

dining room

For a bit of added storage in style as well as a place to put serving trays and decorative items, we designed a floating credenza-style buffet for the dining room.

bar

This open floor plan is perfect for parties, game nights, and any gathering. Adding a bar with plenty of seating and its own refrigeration was a must.

office

Dark horizontal grain-matched fronts on a wide variety of cabinetry sizes and features creates a statement. The handleless doors let the exquisite veneer shine through.

 

Built-in LED lighting adds a comfortable glow and makes finding your stored items easy.

 

The palette is very understated letting the decorative touches stand out so changing the mood of the office can be done seasonally. The drama?  Look at the ceiling! These unexpected touches is what we love about working with the Jennifer Burgess Loh interior design team.

master bedroom

Some are surprised that eggersmann designs and creates custom contemporary furniture. In addition to bespoke tables, chairs, and sofas, we utilize our versatile Schmalenbach line of cabinetry to create custom built-ins as well as beds. We created a dreamy oversized headboard with night tables in a restful palette for these homeowners. It must be challenging to go to sleep knowing that beautiful view is there.

 

Shhhh! There’s a TV on remote-contolled riser hidden under the bed frame.

his & her walk-in wardrobes

After discussing and measuring the couple’s fashion and accessories as well as how they wanted to use their closets, we designed shelving, drawers, hanging rods, and cabinet space for every need. Electric pull-down rods in both his and her wardrobes enabled use of the amazing amount of space at the top of the tall ceilings.

 

Some of our specialty features included are an automatic watch winder in his wardrobe and an automatic retracting mirror in her wardrobe.

his & her master baths

So much creativity in these his and her baths. Exotic finishes with lots of pattern on pattern yet still very tranquil.

powder room

Powder rooms are always fun to design as even homeowners timid about bold design are usually willing to take a risk in these tiny jewel boxes. Luckily for us and for themselves, these homeowners had impeccable tasted and recognized an opportunity for flair when they saw it. We designed a dramatic powder room vanity that the Burgess Loh interior design team expertly accessorized. The wall covering is fantastic!

the team

Andrea Villamarin and Evan Soltoff led the design team from the eggersmann Houston showroom that collaborated with designer, Jennifer Burgess Loh, and builder, GT Leach.
