Expanding upon natural landscapes is the name of the game for Olson Kundig, even when it comes to sky-high penthouses. Just look to their Glass Penthouse.
To be sold off-market for a whispered $50 million, the penthouse is a collaborative success by Olson Kundig; ASH Staging, which did the design; developer Townscape Partners and Creative Art Partners, which provided art.
“Among other objectives, we wanted to achieve two critical design goals that we hoped would set this project apart from all others," Tyler Seigel of Townscape Partners explained. "One, create the closest product as possible to that of an extraordinary custom Olson Kundig designed home and two, to change the game on the experience between indoor and outdoor space, hopefully creating a new paradigm that combines the best attributes of living in a single family estate together with unparalleled views, in a city that has the most conducive climate for that outdoor experience.”
The property's winning feature is undoubtedly the floor-to-ceiling windows and expansive balconies with wrap-around views of Los Angeles. Despite the penthouse being ten stories in the sky, the space has an indoor-outdoor feel thanks to the Swiss-engineered Vitrocsa sliding glass doors and natural light.
The four-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bath space is perfectly modern, yet still embraces a welcoming ambiance. Throughout the 7,940 square feet, countless high-quality design choices add to the sophistication of the home. These additions include Gaggenau and Miele appliances, Dornbracht fixtures, Smart home features and French White Oak flooring.

“The Penthouse at 8899 Beverly is a singular residence with virtually no counterpart in all of Los Angeles. The sheer volume of the great room in particular is spectacular and allowed us the opportunity to craft distinct entertaining spaces of grand scale. Furthermore, the rarified quality of the construction inspired us to incorporate only the most refined materials in our selections, echoing the vision of our clients in realizing a truly one-of-a-kind residence” said Andrew Bowen, partner and head of staging at ASH Staging.
Fortunately, the luxury doesn’t end there. Thanks to the countless amenities, 8899 Beverly stands out from the rest and is the epitome of comfort. The building includes 24-hour surveillance, a bellhop, valet and a doorman, who all ensure that every resident has only the best service.
On the premises, there is also an outdoor pool and hot tub area with plenty of space for laying out in the sun in one of the many comfortable seating arrangements. For those leading a more active lifestyle, there is a 2,300-square-foot state-of-the-art fitness area with private trainers and a yoga studio. There are gorgeous gardens, an outdoor fireplace, a cooking area and alfresco dining throughout the building. On the ground floor of 8899 Beverly, the new delicious restaurant, Stella, will have a private residence entrance.
