Grosvenor's Crescent Building Debuts A Model Penthouse That Defies The Usual

The new model penthouse at Crescent ($7.1 million, is a home of contradictions. In addition to bringing ethereal, modern style to historic Nob Hill (making it one of the first new developments in the neighborhood in decades), the apartment brings the outdoors in, swapping overplayed industrial style for stunning city views. Wallpaper designs throughout the 1,825 square feet of interiors nod to nature, willow branches dangle over placid waters, and clouds bring a touch of whimsy to the master bedroom. One of 44 units at Crescent, the model residence is a collaboration between Robert A.M. Stern Architects, Champalimaud Design and Jeff Schlarb Design Studio. “We kept drawing upon the idea of creating a custom, romantic space that feels exciting and familiar at the same time,” Schlarb says. “The color palette, in particular, draws upon nature and complements the stunning sky and bay sightlines visible from terraces that span the home.”
