Zyscovich was commissioned to design the custom interiors for a 4,200 SF condominium with a 180 degree view of the city. The client purchased two units and the firm’s challenge was to merge the two spaces into one. To facilitate the flow, the designers created an inlaid teak “ribbon” which visually united all of the spaces. The “ribbon” began on the floor at the front door and moved throughout by climbing a wall, turning corners and then appearing on the ceiling. The luxurious finishes included a pristine seamless white glass floor, lavish wood millwork and “stingray” leather upholstered walls.
Several features were added to accommodate the client’s request that the entire space be designed to facilitate large events and entertaining. The master bedroom transforms into an additional entertainment area when the bed slowly retracts halfway into the wall and presents itself as a large sofa. A “fainting couch” which acts as the transition between the living and master is upholstered in red leather and “pony hair” leather wall panels. A “Cigar Room” wrapped in exotic zebra wood millwork includes a piano, a projection screen, a bar and comfy lounge seating while concealing a Murphy bed within the walls. A striking black high gloss 25’ dining table extends from the kitchen into the living room and is embellished with numerous “ball and claw” ornate table legs. All furniture and fixtures were custom designed by the firm.
