Synergy. That is the best way to describe this apartment. A real ground up remodel of this apartment by Lapis Design Partners created something much greater than the sum of the parts. Whitewashed bamboo, a finish sample I stumbled upon during experimentation, provided an awesome face to this complete fit out. 3Form panels were used in many of the doors, while flooring, wall and counter materials all complimented one another. A selection of state of the art hardware made the many functions designed by John Black work effortlessly. Take a look at the fold down worksurface where the client paints for example. Other less visible features are a full sized pocketing door for the laundry and a fold up bed platform that accesses a huge storage area inside. The lighting in this apartment really showed off the work and assured atmosphere at any time of the day. I don’t mind saying that the fit and finish we achieved on this job was awesome.

Selecting materias that are beautiful but not overwhelming can be tricky. Here we used figured quartered anigre to give a warm architectural tone, contrasted with more graphic grey door systems. The veneers were custom layed up so everything matched flawlessly. Another crisp Lapis Design Partners design incorporated lots of storage space in built ins and more forward display areas on open cabinetry. This apartment definitely has a young vibrant feel to it. The sliding door systems with frosted glass give the space a cool feeling during the day while the pocketing living room doors open up to gorgeous evening sunsets, courtesy of Hawaii.

Sometimes we are given 50 design requirements and the head of a pin to fit them on. It’s hard for that not to get crowded. This was like an Egyptian tomb access tunnel that we turned into a powerful home office and wardrobe room. You can’t see the function but the door systems are telescoping providing amazingly simple function to dividing the spaces.

Office, Bedroom, Dining Buffet, Family Room, not necessarily in that order. These jobs were fun and interactive. I think we made a lot out of a lot. Check out the maple burl inset panels. I think they look like the storms on Saturn.

Excellent design work by the architect John Black helped put the owners personal collections into built in spaces, letting their art take center stage but also giving the house a lived in feel. We really like our projects to call a little attention to themselves, but never at the expense of the space. This is one reason built in cabinetry can be so successful. Professional lighting design also played a big roll in how well things turned out.

The Ritz Carlton custom design

This was a really great job for us. The requests kept coming and I felt like we had good responses. A last minute request for a sustainably harvested wood lead to us using German Beech. It is hard, stable, and takes finishes really well as you can see. The carved panels adorn almost twenty columns in the lobby area.
