This 5,500 square foot, three-bedroom penthouse mixes a variety of textures, materials, and numerous patterns with accents of colors and the client’s collection of fine art. The design, within the context of the Jean Nouvel’s residential tower on the west side, finds its inspiration as a mix between the client’s proclivity and the strong architectural cues inherent in the building itself.
Spare and elegant, the plan for this domestic interior combines the client’s proclivity toward an art deco aesthetic with doses of detailed attention to proportion and surface decoration. The intricacy of this design solution is embodied in the decorative plaster overmantel and plinth blocks of the fireplace, and the decorative wood parquet floor in the entrance foyer.

This complex campus of structures began as a modest 1850s farmhouse, renovated by WGA in a manner true to its rural New England roots. The cluster has since grown to encompass a multitude of structures, each of which has its own function, keeping with agrarian custom. A full suite of buildings now serve the client’s desires, including a garden shed, a boathouse, a studio, and a gym.
While each building houses a single function, the conglomeration yields a harmonious sense of place within the country vernacular. The design is thoroughly integrated with the landscape, at play with the rolling hills and scattered lakes. Although a fully-restored graveyard haunts the landscape, this ever-evolving architectural colony mirrors its spirit on the surrounding, thriving forest.
The Scient offices manifest the visual power and dynamic imagery of this internet service giant that develops the online and social media presence for a multitude of Fortune 500 companies.
