White-and-white duplex: a minimalistic penthouse in New York

Lovers of straight lines and competently organizedsemi-empty interiors will certainly appreciate this glossy white duplex located in a city that never sleeps This 2-storey penthouse is located in the residential complex of Carl Fischer Building (New York). At once, two architectural companies were engaged in the reconstruction of the 418-meter apartments: CWS Architecture and Lissoni Associati. The emphasis was on a minimalist interior and the use of natural materials. For example, floors, stairs to the terrace and fireplace inliving room completely made of white stone. Also, in the decoration of almost every room, natural wood was used. Our Opinion This living room is an example of some of the best interior decorating techniques. The color of the floor, one of the walls and part of the ceiling - one tone - pink-gray. Thanks to the color itself, and the fact that almost all surfaces are painted with it, a feeling of warmth and comfort is achieved, which could hardly have appeared just like that in this initially "cold" space. This technique is also called the box effect. 2. A long, low table top along the entire window serves as a storage area for small items and a seating area. And it also plays the role of one of the steps of the staircase, connecting the staircase itself and the wall with the window into a single compositional knot. 3. Plain-colored curtains made of simple-looking fabric go over the suspended ceiling. This is the most effective technique for decorating windows in designer interiors: in this way, the curtain becomes, as it were, an element of internal architecture, and the eyes are not distracted by it. 4. The stair railing is made of transparent glass: it is there, but it is practically invisible. As a result, the space is not eaten away, and the steps of the stairs against the background of the bare wall already become a decorative element that you want to admire. This bright, shiny white penthouseflew to the owners a pretty penny: spent about 2.5 million dollars. No wonder: the heating system of the apartment is fully installed in the floor, and the kitchen, bathroom and most of the furniture are made to order. Do not also forget about the rare luck for the inhabitants of the megapolis luck - a private terrace on the roof with an equipped barbecue area. The terrace is decorated with great taste:trendy white balls-lamps, a huge table for 10 people, chairs designed by Verner Panton for Vitra - not everyone will furnish their living room this way. However, having a luxurious roof overlooking Manhattan is already a lot. cwsarchitecture.com, lissoniassociati.com
