Your duplex’s living room faces due east, giving any day a remarkable
sky view as you walk down your living room stairs in the morning. As the sun
begins to set, the broad western exposure from the balconies off each
bedroom presents you with an unobstructed sunset view, and a warm
amber-colored light that streams through the apartment. (At the Tapiés all
doors facing east/west are made of diffused glass to provide privacy, while
allowing the light to fill interior spaces.)
The 300 sq ft kitchen in apartment 3 is a perfect marriage of form and
function. Whether you enjoy serious cooking or serious entertaining (or
both), you will love the vast counter spaces, large, deep sink and bar sink,
wine cooler, and high-end cooktop and dual ovens. A custom-designed cabinet
and countertop combination include s mahogany Poggenpohl® cabinets and a
3"-thick CaesarStone® countertops.
Everywhere you look, you ’ll see architectural details that amaze. In
apartment 3, on levels 4 and 5 of the building, the 20-foot-high ceiling in
the living room is a work of art in itself: the lighting is designed for
displaying art on the vast walls, but also functions for the realities of
everyday living, like reading the newspaper. Other details you will love:
custom-designed, hand- made doors with a “gallery ” reveal around each edge;
modern hand-made baseboards that are flush with the walls; and a built-in
music program system that is easy to control and creates an environment that
feels like home.
The baths are spacious, modern and smart. Amazing natural light in the
master bath combines with high-end fixtures to create a peaceful refuge that
is positively spa-like. Glass tiles have a timeless appeal, and are easy to
clean. Many details are custom designed for The Tapiés. (See details on
amenities on the reverse side.)
The building is a work of art on the outside, and interiors are designed
with large walls for artwork, or just calming white space.
Strategically placed speakers deliver programmable music and television
audio throughout your home. Truly heaven.
Large limestone floor slabs mirror the proportions of your space on the
first level; unique, skinny wood boards elongate the space on the mezzanine
level with modern elegance. Mahogany doors custom handcrafted and designed
for The Tapiés —with glass panels or wood panels.
