Ford Models Office

Rafael de Cárdenas / Architecture at Large as Architects

This penthouse in the historic Warren and Wetmore building is home to both the Ford Models Women’s Division and two floors of exhibition space for fordPROJECT. The design of the Women’s Division floor pays homage to the history of the building through a palette of Art Deco, Gothic, and Parisian themes. Hand-painted murals of exotic fauna and flora by Leon Benn anchor the main spaces. Hand-painted silver ceilings reflect a grid of nickel light fixtures, while silk and velvet textiles absorb and soften light. A three-sided copper and glass solarium is set amidst open terraces. The upper terraces of the Ford penthouse contain ford PROJECT, a new gallery space designed for site-specific installations and exhibitions.
