Upper East Side Penthouse owned by Fashion Designer Lisa Perry. Architecture by 1100 Architect. Interior Design by Tony Ingrao.
1100 transformed this previously ornate midtown penthouse into a striking minimalist space that reflects the modern style of the inhabitants. Every decision underlines the clients’ pop art sensibility, influenced by the artists they admire and whose work they collect: Warhol, Riley, Lichtenstein, and others. Basic geometric shapes, repeated in a variety of materials and in the furniture, echo the simple forms of the art. Hard polished surfaces – marble agglomerate floors, lacquer, stainless steel, glass, and plastic – reflect light and create a sleek, glowing environment. In the living spaces walls arc into ceilings, blurring boundaries and creating continuous, infinite spaces. Narrow hallways open into large foyers and rooms, and a spacious kitchen occupies the center of the apartment. If pop art calls attention to the visual impact of an image, then this home fulfills a desire to penetrate that image and enter its world. (1100 Architect)
