Movements, spaces and volumes occur to fulfill various functional requirements through the architectural manipulation of materials, details and finishes. Two equal halves performing public and private functions are employed throughout horizontally and vertically.
In this project, we applied the principle of parametric architecture again, however, this time the design was more complex and elaborated: there is no space between panels (the viewers won’t care about dust), that’s why the wall looks like a complex monolithic element with intricate curves, some features serve as shelves, and some of them are decorative only. This makes the room look ultramodern, the composition being somewhat compensated by making the bed corner in a light art deco style: a leather quilted bed with a ceiling-high head, soft and warm lighting – all this makes the room cozy and allows admiring the architectonic design ‘from the outside’. Because the architectonic wall is in focus, we decided to use a restrained combination of graphite grey and white.
The solid cherry wall and two story high bookcase and the delicate staircase enclosing these private functions, are punctured by high windows and pre-existing skylights, allowing light to penetrate while preserving a sense of serene calmness.
It’s certainly an apartment for those with certain tastes, but its downtown views and dual-floor wrap-around terraces are the best decoration of all
