PARK TOWER RESIDENCE

The clients for this project, a couple moving back to the city after raising a family in the suburbs, desired a space reflective of this significant change and placed few aesthetic requirements on the table; the two-bedroom apartment, built out from raw space, was to be resolutely new. Inspired by a concept mastered by architect R.M. Schindler, the main living and dining spaces are formed from interlocking 'L' shaped forms of Honduran Mahogany and plaster. A spine-like circulation path stretches seventy feet through the space. Faced in leather tile, it links the major places of the apartment while separating public from private zones. An organizing module derived from the high-rise's structural and window geometry provides a basis for the design of millwork and related components.
