The Quinlan Group has designed a waterfront apartment, titled the 'Parker Residence,' for a client who loves to entertain.
To accommodate for this need, the architects separated the home into public and private areas. The distinct zones are divided by a continuous wall, which has the ability to open and shut in multiple different configurations. The theme continues into the public space by featuring several retractable laser-cut screens situated within the stone blade walls. The accompanying fixtures and finishes are high-quality materials in an all natural palette, so that even the public spaces can be meditative and quiet. The entire home draws from the styles of Japanese and Brazilian modernists.
Overall, the Parker Residence makes a great living space for those who require flexibility when it comes to negotiating the public and private realms of life.
