This project began by combining three condo floor plans into one large 4 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath plan. Using the basic cabinetry finishes this space was further customized by using dramatic countertops, rich marble flooring and handmade wall tile in the bathrooms, and punctuations of Venetian plaster and wallpaper in key spaces for big impact.

The entryway acts as a cocktail lounge with a floor-to-ceiling multifunctional storage system that serves as a bar, a workspace, and provides the maximum amount of storage for additional serving pieces. Unlike most downtown condos, a custom 19-foot dining table was able to fit in the space created by positioning the kitchen parallel to the long run of exterior North facing windows.

The design of this living room began with the selection of the freeform rug that both defines the circulation and brings the primary color and pattern in the space. The linear sofa and sculptural lounge chairs create a dynamic interplay between architecturally rigid forms and soft organic shapes.

This ultra moody master bath is all about layered tones and subtle texture. The ultra-luxe suede finished pietra grey marble floor sets the stage for the dramatic wall to wall hand made tile. Tying it all together, a handsome Venitian plaster was used on every other surface not covered in tile. The his and hers vanities are set off with highly functional yet supremely sexy linear wall sconces that swivel; allowing the user to direct the light wherever necessary.
