DANIEL CRAIG HIGH-RISE PENTHOUSE

 

 

This 67th-floor Manhattan penthouse apartment was the New York home for Daniel Craig. Carefully oriented furniture groups frame the magnificent skyline view, following the Japanese garden concept of shakkei (“borrowed view”), in which an extraordinary adjacent or distant exterior view is incorporated into the present composition.

At the same time, the arrangements connect across the sprawling interior space, making the apartment feel more intimate. Thoughtful textures and art complement subtle patterns within the overall neutral color palette. The rich monotones offer ample surfaces for the ambient theatre of natural light as the day deepens to a swanky evening glow.
