The sleek and unique linear kitchen arrangement stretches the length of the open concept living and dining area. "At the end of the day, it's no bigger than a standard kitchen, but it is very unique in that it feels a lot bigger," says designer Alessandro Munge. The contrast between the two-toned white and wenge cabinetry sets a dramatic tone that continues throughout the suite. Defining the dining area is a showstopping 60s-style light fixture that hangs above the round glass-topped Herman Miller table.

 

In the bathroom, a semi-recessed vessel sink rises from a marble countertop atop cabinets with a strikingly pronounced vertical wood grain. "We've chosen to answer people's concerns about counter space," says Alessandro. "We've reconfigured the arrangement of the toilet and maximized the width of the cabinets."Even at 870 square feet, there's room for a queen-sized bed in the suite's guest bedroom. Here, munge//leung chose a walnut-framed bed, topped with a silver-grey felt headboard.
