Caribbean Penthouse

To design this 6000-square-foot penthouse, Marguerite Rodgers was presented with raw space and the opportunity to change the plan. The firm’s long-term client allowed free reign to create a modern and welcoming residence for guests and family. The plan includes two generous primary suites, a third bedroom suite and a den that doubles as a fourth bedroom. Perfect for entertaining guests or extended stays, the interior exudes the warmth and character of a personal home. Given the freedom to create, the designers followed their passion for materials, collecting, crafting, and collaborations.  Antique Moroccan doors with metal repousse panels slide to reveal the elevator. Glass castings crafted from the repousse metal panels became the adjacent laundry room panels, drawing in the light while concealing the room. Repurposed architectural elements include doors, metal grills, and numerous light fixtures. Collections, books, colors, compositions, textures, and materials thoughtfully come together for very personal, intriguing spaces. Asian-inspired design, in particular, lends serenity and worldliness characteristic to every Marguerite Rodgers project. Tropical luxe is achieved with wood and rattan furniture upholstered in neutral textiles. The clients’ art collection and other accent pieces provide colorful moments while poured glass, mosaic, limestone, and onyx offer gleaming surfaces. An open, floating quality belies the complexity of this design.
