What about the apartment itself? The dropped ceiling soffit that center the kitchen area provides an architectural element, while custom pendants of polished nickel and clear mica descend over the counter in perfect complement to the Thermador stainless steel hood from Ferguson. Fixed glass panels flank the entryway to the open great room. A dramatic Capiz shell chandelier descends from a drop-down architectural ceiling soffit to create an intimate conversation zone.
“The chandelier is the “fireplace” for this room, it’s the “fire and light” that draws guests to the space” – Saunders says. And the open living area incorporates an impromptu dining area : the ebonized sofa, table can be moved back just enough to accommodate four dining chairs and the bench in the living area to provide comfortable seating for six. The focal point of the foyer, a fascinating conversation-piece artwork from the owners’ private collection, features a video installation wherein the artist himself picks up and moves a wooden slat bench. The owners were so intrigued with the artwork that Saunders tracked down the actual bench depicted in the video and placed it directly below the work as part of the installation.
Originally an enclosed space, the kitchen now stands totally exposed. “Our objective was to create the look of one seamless piece of furniture instead of appliances, since the space is so visible from the living area.” Saunders says referencing the pass-through, where an architectural column wrapped in porcelain tile provides a foil for the minimalized kitchen island plumbing that is concealed within. Along the far wall, custom architectural cabinetry clad in a sand-toned Tabu veneer finish houses a pantry and a pair of fully integrated, Thermador refrigeration/freezer columns. ”
