Studio Santalla designed these custom closets, allowing for triple high hanging, and fitted with off-the-shelf interior components from the Container Store, for this second home for an international power couple,

A dysfunctional condo in a former industrial building has been transformed into a modern oasis, a second home for a busy international couple. The existing industrial elements have been exposed, celebrating the history of the space. What was formerly a chopped-up and segmented space has been opened to the expanse of industrial-style factory windows, bathing the space in natural light. Designated spaces are defined with furnishings, as opposed to walls. Throughout, custom furnishings and storage keeps clutter out of site. Special care was taken to ensure sprinkler heads, audio-visual and electrical wiring, and switching were invisible, creating a flawless environment.

A Divider, housing both the media center and platform bed, separates the living space from the bedroom, without creating a barrier. The media center, custom designed by Studio Santalla allows for the Television to be concealed when not in use. A comfortable black leather sectional from B&B Italia sits atop a custom designed mosaic cowhide area rug. Though few, the iconic furnishings provide soft relief from the industrial space.

A custom, eat-in kitchen integrates the appliances and the cabinetry, keeping messes out of site.  The sleek workspace provides a home for a sculpture from Keith Milow. A space-defining wood and glass desk provides a workspace for two, and a pedestal for a bold sculpture from Nelson Carrilho. A massive painting from Keith Milow provides a stunning backdrop to this home office.

The large walk in closet includes a counter for folding clothes.  The custom minimal cabinetry has been designed to house off-the-shelf closet organization from the Container Store. The sleek bathroom space is bookended by a frosted glass watercloset and a dark tiled shower.
