High atop a city tower and separated from all nature, my client had three cramped apartment units which he wanted to combine into one home. I sensed the need to connect the space to nature. The design dedicated the space equal to more than one of those units just for open space. Stepping into the center of the home is not a dark experience. In contrast, one sees the panoramic views across the Hudson River towards the rolling hills of New Jersey.
A waterfall marks the center of the home, its soft bubbling sound setting the rhythm of a calming pace. Further along, a stone fireplace acts as a gentle divider between the dining area and central sitting area.
A steam room faces south towards the Statue of Liberty for sunset relaxation.
