New energy-efficient windows a bit bigger than before on each side of the bed and another by the seating area have crisp white roman shades that offer control over the level of natural light in the room.
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.
