The owner asked PEI to recreate the atmosphere of a New York City loft with a Chinese essence. To achieve this, PEI was inspired by the organization of the Beijing courtyard house.
The major rooms are separated by fully latticed doors employing contemporary interpretations of traditional patterns found in classical Chinese architecture.
The custom detailing and finishes for the apartment include Magny du Louvre limestone for the living room, and teak floors and artisan plaster on the walls and ceiling. The walls of the bathroom are made of Calacata Altisimo marble and glass tiles.
The interior of this corner unit, open on the north and west sides, was laid out to make the best possible use of natural light and exterior views.
