Timeless materials

Materials throughout the common areas include raw wood, blackened steel, and unique details and fixtures. A large chandelier hangs in the lobby as a central focal point.

Distinctive artwork and lighting

At the feature stair, a backlit art screen provides visual interest and separates public from private. In the shared kitchen, a similar technique is used to create a focal sepia-tone art wall with stunning vintage pictures. Lighting throughout the common areas is used to accent special design features while also providing a subtle path through the space.
