VISIONARY AND LEAD DESIGNER
VISIONARY AND LEAD DESIGNER
Q: Being a Tribeca resident, you seem to have a particular affinity for your designs at 11 Beach. Which features excite you the most?
A: We really wanted to create a sense of modern, gracious living. One of the most desired yet rare attributes is privacy. Therefore, we spread the elevators throughout the building so that every apartment has the opportunity to have private elevator access. This is a key feature of the classic "six and seven residences" on Park and Fifth that we were able to bring to a downtown setting.
Q: The entertaining spaces are unusually large. What was your design objective?
A: We wanted to bridge the best attributes of loft living with an elegant family residence. Inspired by our downtown locale, we have open kitchens, spacious living rooms, high ceilings, and even, when possible, restored exposed beams. The bedroom wing is inspired by a thoughtful practicality. There are formal laundry areas, proper gallery hallways, and an abundance of wardrobe space.
Q: The townhouses are quite unique. What inspired the design?
A: Traditionally, the penthouses are the most coveted. We wanted to do something truly memorable and give the top of the building some competition. The penthouses are terrific, with some of the largest private terraces downtown. But the base level is truly unique. We created three townhouse triplexes, each with a lower level that is basically a complete spa. They have steam rooms, they have saunas, they have showers, and they all have 50-foot lap pools which is completely radical.
Q: You are known for creating ‘sophisticated modern luxury.’ How is your aesthetic reflected in the finishes?
A: It’s more than just designing a spectacular kitchen and baths. Those, to me, are prerequisites. It’s the quality of thoughtful craftsmanship that really elevates a residence into a home. For instance, that means that when we put in a floor, it should be a significant floor. We used eight-inch-wide plank flooring featuring a rusticated oak, knots and all. It is a smart, modern look that fits the downtown lifestyle.
Q: You’ve lived in Tribeca for many years. Tell me about this location.
A: I think 11 Beach anchors the better part of Tribeca, actually. This corner manages to be Tribeca while taking advantage of SoHo at the same time. There has also been a retail explosion in northern Tribeca and the restaurants here have become destination restaurants because they are surrounded by boutiques and specialty shops that give this area a chic, neighborhood feel.
