This apartment, designed by MOS, is defined through cabinetry as hollow walls that enclose rooms and provide storage for the resident’s extensive collection of designed objects. The cabinet-walls in the common area contain two square niches for display and taper gently in plan to make the space feel larger in perspective. The cabinets are both the walls of a room and objects that float when placed against the diagonal pattern of the wood floor, which, when reinforced by light tracks in the ceiling, forms a pattern of lines running across the whole width of the apartment. Secondary spaces have dropped ceilings with a pattern of holes, providing visual interest, acoustic absorption, and seamlessly integrating recessed lights and vent diffusers. As counterpoint to its collection of unifying, all-over-patterned surfaces, the apartment has three materially monolithic bathrooms: one in engineered stone, another in custom ceramic tile, and a third in honed marble.
