PORSCHE DESIGN TOWER APARTMENT RESIDENCE
B+G designed a family-friendly vacation home for a family of four at the Porsche Design Tower. The residence is equipped with a two-car garage, and Sugerman notes that the building’s calling card demands attention. “When you’re in the lobby, you can see the car elevators going up the building,” he says. “Both the concept and the execution are cool.” Loor emphasizes that durability—as well as the cool factor—was required. The 4,500-square-foot residence with four bedrooms and 3.5 baths was designed for children and teens, yet masquerades as a sophisticated, tailored vision in white, blue and grayscale. Liberal use of slick surfaces and metallics refer to the building’s automotive theme. B+G Design modified the floor plan to create a kids’ hangout space and the family room’s oversized sectional represents the home’s marriage of aesthetics and resilience: upholstered in a durable, two-tone basket-weave Holly Hunt fabric, custom made in collaboration with Grafton Furniture. The hangout room, features a functional sleeper sofa by Arravanti, features Herman Miller’s adjustable Sayl desk chair from Design Within Reach, and metallic blue velvet throw pillows swathed in Holly Hunt fabric.
