Home » HanStone Quartz used to create a dream kitchen and bathroom
Using the stunning views of Downtown Atlanta, architect and designer Vykintas Genys used HanStone Quartz to bring his client’s vision to life. “This breathtaking penthouse features ultra-modern design elements, inspired by my European upbringing,” said Genys. “Throughout, the home is adorned in cool tones, from the crisp white floor tiles, to the HanStone Quartz countertops in the kitchen and bath. During the renovation, many walls were removed to create a more open floor plan. A see-through wall was placed between the bed and master bath to expand the view of the gorgeous Atlanta skyline to all areas of the room. For the master bath, I designed a custom vanity using HanStone Quartz, placing the material on a solid glass cube to create a beautiful illusion.”
In the kitchen, HanStone’s Royale Blanc and Aramis were used, while Aramis was also used in the bathroom. Genys used three slabs of the Royale Blanc and one slab of the Aramis for the project. The client of the project, Todd White, founder of Lexmark Carpet, let Genys be extremely creative with the project. “When I design space I usually create a feeling I would like to share and then I visualize colors and textures that would support that feeling and I stick to that. Material selection depends on the project,” said Genys. “Some clients have a conservative budget or design requirements that limit how far you can go creatively, but the Todd White penthouse project was a complete joy and allowed me real freedom of expression. And I learned that when I select material, people are more exited to know why or how it was selected, so a story to support the choice adds a lot to deepen the connection and experience of the space.
