Central Park South Apartment - New York

In Richard Sammons, Mr. Oresman found an architect sympathetic to his literary and artistic tastes, who could design a suitably uplifting setting without losing sight of practicalities. The client’s sole instruction was that his new library should be created using a light wood rather than the more traditional mahogany or dark-stained oak, since the studio apartment is lit only by northern light. Each surface is carefully articulated with well proportioned Classical detail, the pedimented faces of the bookcases modeled on ancient tabernacles. A specific client request included a perch for bird-watching as Central Park is forms the magnificent backdrop outside the double-height windows.
