The refurbished heritage entry of the sales centre – with original mosaics and mouldings – is elaborated upon with newly-installed cocoon-like pendant lights and a custom, cold-rolled steel and antique-mirror reception desk. These will be re-positioned in the residence upon its completion.
The expansive main gallery, accessed through a portal of velvet swag drapes, is organized into functional zones without partitions. Instead, closing and seating areas and scale model are delineated with traditionally-inspired, custom mouldings; digitally-generated, trompe-l’oeil, custom wall-panels; custom furnishings; and an elaborate mosaic in-the-round, uncovered during the showroom’s construction. Each of these elements will be re-mounted / re-used in the future condominium.
The 60 m² model suite –an actual suite layout with some upgrades – features a thoroughly-modern living environment fused with traditional motifs. Contemporary, custom millwork is subtly ornamented with applied decoration. Custom furniture is antique in silhouette yet simplified for an updated, graphic appearance. Seemingly incongruent design details are unified in a subdued palette of finishes, accented with boldly-theatrical flourishes.
