Inside William Randolph Hearst’s New York Penthouse – The William Randolph Heart’s New York Penthouse was renewed by the interior designer Bennett Leifer and Annie Coombs of Siris/Coombs Architects.
A project that was more like a surgery due to work that the team had in order to keep the historical narrative of the home, it took a lot of their energy, precision and care. Are you curious enough to see this masterpiece? Take a look:
This project is definitely a breath of fresh air high above the city, where the son can practice the clarinet comfortably in the formal living room and the daughter can host a birthday picnic on the artificial turf on the terrace.
Leifer’s tried to make a balance between the volume of the space and the comfort/intimacy of a family home, trying to establish harmony between light and dark elements through materiality.
In the foyer, the original lacewood panels were covered with reflective white lacquer segments in order to add more natural light to the rooms. Leifer also had to engineer the drapery to match the curve of the walls.
In the living room, silk velvet on the sofas is intended to age with use and adds low-key luster opposite a shimmering Lobmeyr chandelier.
With counter stools by Gubi, pendants by Bocci, and an EFLM sofa on an Edward Fields rug, the kitchen evokes a modern-day aerie. The backsplash is a glass mosaic by Artistic Tile, and the cabinetry is designed by Siris/Coombs Architects.
In the master bedroom, cocktail tables topped with rock crystal reflect the light, tempering the room’s heavier wood furnishings.
