PH Andersen is a project that centers in the dialogue between the interior and the exterior. The interior design goes hand in hand with the architecture, thus resulting from it.
The starting point of this project was the awareness of the space. The spaces in this project speak for themselves and exalt their plasticity through the elements that were designed, manufactured, and selected through the project’s different stages: from the panoply of materials and furniture used to the accessories and art pieces chosen.
The project begins through the main entrance: an entrance hall with a piece of furniture designed to be the pedestal for the sculpture “Pájaro de dos cabezas” (bird with two heads) by Juan Soriano. Said piece of furniture works also as a wine cellar for the dining room.
The dining room is decorated with a Carrara marble table and a sphere hanging lamp, the room’s background has a grey granite wall; the same material can also be found in the external façade of the building where the apartment is located. The living room takes advantage of the space’s height through a floor lamp that complements the furniture’s cold tones and ebony accents; it was all strategically selected for this chamber.
The link between the public and private areas of the penthouse is a long hall topped with a lattice inspired in the shadows casted by the interior garden that faces the rooms. The lattice was designed through processes of digital manufacturing.
The use of natural colors, soft woods and white marble in the furniture, walk-in closets, and bathrooms in each of the bedrooms, promote relaxation.
A sculptured staircase grants access to the studio, whose main protagonist is an extensive bookcase with a vast collection of books and sculptures.
The terrace is flanked by the studio, and it houses a water mirror and granite monolithic steps upon which rests a sculpture by Juan Pablo Vidal. Said design reinforces the concept of contemplation and meditation.
A roof garden is located on the opposite side of the studio. The roof garden is covered by a wooden pergola that shades the bar. The bar’s granite clamp is crowned by a hanging lamp. The pathway to the solarium is decorated with a row of aromatic vegetation that ends with a series of granite platforms from which the jacuzzi emerges.
Here is where the tour of the project ends. This idea was born from our commitment to the client, and was made a reality with the quality and the details that characterize our architecture and interior design. As a young architectural firm, projects like this encourage us in our path to succeed as architects and human beings.
