North Palm Beach, FL 2006
Collaborated with Robert A.M. Stern Architects
JGA designed the interiors of this 3000 sq ft apartment in North Palm Beach as a fresh, bright weekend getaway for a young family. The apartment consists of a large open great room, a study and three bedrooms.
The interplay of intimate and open spaces provides a clean background for an eclectic mix of artwork, mid-century furnishings and custom furniture. JGA assembled a collection of furniture for the clients by such masters as George Nakashima, Billy Haines, Tommi Parzinger, Edward Wormley, Vladimir Kagan, and Leleu, along with a growing collection of art that includes Warhol, Picasso, Bertoia and Italian glass from the 1930’s to 1970’s. The main living space, including the open kitchen, is anchored by a large sectional sofa, balancing the heft of the kitchen island. The master suite is a serene refuge, with hand-woven fabrics and raw silk wall covering softening the architecture.
The bedrooms are designed to be both functional and fun for teenagers and elegant for overnight guests down for a weekend of golf. The spirit of the apartment reflects that of the clients; sophisticated, youthful and modern.
