Rodney Lawrence Inc. as Architects

The design evolved around the client’s art collection but was kept simple, preserving the original loft feeling.


The starting point was defining one area in the space that had an exotic feel. We came up with the concept of an “opium den” which guided the color pallet and finish selections throughout the apartment. It was also the clients request to add definition to various areas in the space as the apartment was delivered as a “white box” by the developers.


The kitchen is integrated to the living room, creating one space taking advantage of the large windows on the street facing side of the apartment. Bedrooms and family spaces are separate from the living area, creating a more intimate and private space.


The shell of the space was kept with light finishes acting as a background for art. The furnishings counter balance this with richer color tones and the play of textures. All finishes, colors and fabrics were selected in order to create a warm ambience that at the same time would enhance the art collection 


The living room is relatively deep, with all the windows on only one side so we had to be very mindful when selecting the window treatments in order to maximize the amount of natural light without compromising the general ambience.
