The footprint of the penthouse left the architect many options in delineating the space. The decision to open the space from its original three distinct areas was made right in the beginning of the design process. However, the clients wanted to make sure this direction gave them the option to have a “formal” apartment when needed for their entertainment and Broadway show premiere functions, while also having a relaxed environment in which to live.
The architect incorporated movable walls and partitions out of glass and stainless steel, in order to open up the space when needed.
The clients were baby boomers who wanted something sleek and contemporary, but did not want to sacrifice comfort. They wanted the very best quality in hard materials and the latest designs the world had to offer in furniture and soft materials. Macassar ebony wood and dupioni silk; alpaca wool and lima limestone; shagreen and basalt; grand architecture and beautiful craftsmanship; a symphony of successes all coming together to fulfill our clients every wish.
