Every detail and element of style we added to the merger of two apartments into an imagined reconstitution of a grand pre-war apartment had to be derived from (or literally re-use pieces of) the early Art Deco building they were in, or from its modernist roots. A public sphere of circulation was created around an imposing gallery separated from the private outer rooms by pivoting glass and steel doors derived from Mondrian paintings, the private rooms also connected by a separate circulation pattern in a peripheral enfilade. A custom silk and wool rug related the surrounding architectural elements in a bar-code pattern focused on a square of long-strand green fibers, the lawn at the apartment entrance door.
