Living Large

A 25,000-square-foot penthouse spanning the 15th floor of the 3-year-old Residences at W Hollywood is one of the largest penthouse properties in the world. The $45 million residence—more than a half acre of space—potentially has all the comforts of a sprawling Los Angeles estate. The raw space features many of the curving forms and long horizontal lines that defined the style of art deco, and the residence’s architect, Los Angeles–based Richardson Robertson III, envisions sleek, curvilinear interiors designed for grand living and stylish entertaining (his sample renderings are shown). Robertson’s floor plans include a library with pneumatic glass doors, a private screening room with 3-D capabilities, a wine room, an art gallery, and a gym. The ’30s-inspired Streamline Moderne residence also boasts a 250-person ballroom, a bar, four bedrooms (including a 4,000-square-foot master suite), and a dining room with seating for 20, and it comes with 17 dedicated parking spaces for an extensive car collection. In exchange for a lush yard, the unit offers 10-foot-high windows throughout and an expansive patio with sweeping views stretching from downtown and across Hollywood to the Pacific Ocean.
