This Week’s Find is a sprawling penthouse at The Metropole in Logan Circle designed by modernist architect Robert Gurney.

The owners of the 2,800 square-foot unit purchased the condo as raw space in 2012. Over the next year, with Robert Gurney’s design assistance, the residence was built out from the concrete bones.

Kitchen and dining room

The unit interior centers around an open main floor ripe for entertaining groups of all sizes — even holding over 100 guests at a time. The green caterer’s kitchen has a 23 foot-long marble countertop, triple sink with instant hot water, Miele gas cooktop with commercial-grade hood, two Miele dishwashers, Wolf double wall ovens, a warming drawer, and over 65 feet of cabinetry.

Wine cellar

The kitchen overlooks a large formal dining area with a sound system and fireplace, and there is a wall suitable for hanging art and another wall of south-facing windows. On the opposite side of the foyer, the living room area has 21 foot-tall ceilings and south- and west-facing windows, with a pendant fireplace from London and orb lights that automatically change colors.

Den

Elsewhere in the apartment, Mondrian-inspired glass panels act as an artistic focal point and also conceal a library/office area with a wall of built-in shelving which opens into the second bedroom with a Murphy bed and additional built-ins. The Mondrian motif continues in the backdrop of the glass-encased chilled wine cellar, which can hold nearly 300 bottles.

Master bedroom

Upstairs is the master suite with kitchenette, dressing room, glass balcony looking into the living room below, and a private outdoor terrace. The suite also opens onto the upper level of a 780 square-foot split-level terrace that not only includes a gas grilling station and irrigation system but is also engineered to accommodate a spa.
