Can they put this place on AirBnb please?
An email landed in my inbox this morning and from the sender and subject line, three things popped out : “Fritz Hansen”, “New York” and “Soren Rose”. Okay, you’ve got my attention…
Soren Rose Studio have completed a head-to-toe renovation of a 6,000 square foot apartment in New York City and it features some truly iconic pieces from one of my personal favourite Danish brands, Fritz Hansen. It is, unsurprisingly breathtaking!
Located on the top floor of Manhatten’s Grammercy Residence the picturesque apartment features its own roof, complete with pool and glass pavilion. The project, in all its facets, is a marriage between traditional Scandinavian design and contemporary, industrial New York.
One of its most remarkable elements is a majestic dark verde alpi marble wall (above right) sourced from the same quarry that Mies Van Der Rohe used for the iconic Barcelona Pavilian in 1929. It helps bridge past and present with easy elegance and it’s an example of the appreciation Soren Rose Studio has for context and detail.
The studio have even designed the bathtubs, vanities, the millwork and even a custom key for the bespoke door. Classic furniture pieces such as the Arne Jacobsen designed Egg Chair™ and Swan Chair™ feature alongside the PK22™, a Poul Kjærholm design from 1956 – all of which round off a project that has been executed to perfection.
In the words of Soren Rose Studio, “this apartment is truly the studio’s Magnum Opus”.
