Spaces: Maisonette: Studio Gang Architects

. Tuesday, August 25, 2009

An amazing space by Chicago's Studio Gang.

"The design for Maisonette transforms a former ballroom of the Ambassador West Hotel into a modern apartment. Two ascending platforms linked by a narrow passerelle expand the ballroom space to the second floor, where additional bedrooms are located. A large void cut away from the second floor slab creates a dramatic vertical space in the center of the apartment. The void establishes visual connections between the living levels, office-platform, game-platform and passerelle, dematerializing the traditional boundaries that characterize domestic space."

Complimenting the interior is an impressive vintage modernist furniture collection including: Roland Rainer plywood stacking chairs surrounding a black Eero Saarinen Tulip dining table, a brass Arredoluce Triennale floor lamp, a Paolo Piva 'Alanda' coffee table, and a round upholstered lounge chair by Ico + Louisa Parisi (I think, not sure).
