Designed by Beverly Hills interior designer, and president and founder of Arch-Interiors Design Group, Christopher Grubb, penthouse 12G is a luxurious, entertainment-focused suite that sits atop The Residences at W Hollywood, the residential component of the $350 million W Hollywood hotel. The brand selected Grubb for his distinctive luxury design perspective and to bring a real “wow “ factor into the penthouse. Grubb’s interpretation of an urban “playhouse” delights and inspires the W’s discerning residential clientele with lively, unexpected touches.
Priced at $999,000, penthouse 12G includes luminous elements, such as twinkling aluminum tile, wallpaper with subtle shimmer, Balinese seashells wrapped around structural columns and unique lighting — all meant to convey the glitter of Tinseltown. The open floor plan is a palette of grays, blacks and beiges with infused pops of color, including vibrantly hued, hand-blown pendants above the bar. Grubb chose custom elements and sumptuous materials befitting of a million-dollar home, such as textured woods, richly finished built-ins, velvet sofas and linen gaming chairs. The resulting atmosphere combines classic opulence with hip modernity.
For many, a second home is designed to be a sanctuary, the perfect place to get away from one’s hectic life, but for the owner of this million-dollar home-away-from-home, the focus is on fun — so much so that a bedroom is forsaken for the desires of a game room instead. Instead of a bed, the centerpiece of the former bedroom-turned-game-room is a custom-designed game table with a stunning starburst center, which is ideal for poker or blackjack, as well as a formal dining setting. This game room also features four flat screen televisions, custom linen gaming chairs and a cantilevered buffet perfect for serving food and beverages.
This penthouse offers a versatile living area with movable furnishings that may be easily reconfigured for any type of gathering and an open floor plan with access to an espresso-finished European kitchen jam-packed with appliances ideal for entertaining. Additional features include a putting green on the terrace and a projector and 110-inch screen with concealed in-wall surround sound speakers.
“I wanted to create something extraordinary and unexpected that would speak to those seeking a youthful, cool, urban experience,” states Grubb, noting the suite’s ideal occupant is someone who desires a grownup version of a child’s playhouse. “While another resident might place emphasis on a lavish bedroom, the owner of penthouse 12G is someone who lives for entertainment. They possess both the desire, and the means, to be playful and bold,” he says.
