This modern home is flooded with natural light. A skylight provides general lighting for the entryway, and a large window at the top of the staircase offers additional lighting and a view of the Italian stone pine tree in the backyard.
The client for SPG Architects’ Chelsea penthouse in New York City asked for a white architectural and interiors palette to create a calming retreat from the hectic nature of NYC life. SPG's interest in diverse materials to add warmth to their particular modernist aesthetic led to this solution: bringing a variety of materials together to create a serene yet textured living environment. The full expanse of windows along the south face of the building and the north- and east-facing terraces provide a visual link to the city, but the space itself remains a refuge of tranquility and light.
