The Eisen Penthouse - located in the Upper West Side of Manhattan, was conceived as an intersection between “large furniture” and architecture. Thickened wall surfaces fold, bend, and merge seamlessly to create multi-purpose spaces with maximized open livable areas. Continuous wall surfaces in titanium epoxy and walnut veneer connect the kitchen area into the living room and master bedroom spaces.
The master bedroom gains privacy through the use of an etched gray glass pivot door while a long band of adjoining glass closets are embedded within the back of the folded living room wall surface. The Bedroom has a luxurious padded leather wall as headboard, as a part of its large furniture element, which also incorporates a study area. Recessed lights accent the lines of the mill work while enhancing the warm gray and walnut coloring of the surrounding walls and counter surfaces. The living room mill work bends to open up the center of the room to amazing 180 degree views, while also serving the dual purposes of creating the master bedroom wall and providing storage and shelving for art work. A lowered soffit follows the wall surface and creates a centralized raised portion which has been painted with a reflective silver texture. Wrapping into the kitchen to encompass the cooking surface, the dining room mill work allows for a breakfast bar, and a serving space. A bent metal shelf above matches the lines of the furniture dissolving the wall into a large opening adjacent to the kitchen entrance.
