Nothing says penthouse like a sweeping series of floor-to-ceiling windows. In the case of this downtown duplex, those glassy walls look out onto skyline vistas so clear they look like they’ve been green screened into the background.

A unit with views like that deserves a luxe and airy interior, and this sky-high Metropolitan Building condo delivers. Thin planks of dark hardwood run through the open living room into the kitchen where a sleek two-wall kitchen sits opposite a built-in dry bar. That area flows into a dining space and another lounging area, making this level an entertaining oasis.

Saunter up the curved statement-making staircase to a more private floor, where you can take a breather from the cocktail-fuelled fetes going on downstairs. Though “private” might seem like a generous word for bedrooms encased by glass, every window in the home is fitted with Somfy motorized shades that can descend in a moment.

The home design is relatively minimalist and replete with earthy tones, but with the backdrop of the entire city wallpapering most of the space, this chic dwelling is anything but plain.
