Full Description

This beautifully illustrated large-format monograph reveals how multi-disciplinary architectural firm 212box has crafted a luxurious and bespoke penthouse suite in Houston, Texas. The principals on the project collaborated with more than 50 talented artisans and craftspeople — from sculptors to cabinet makers to painters and ceramicists, among many others — to create beautifully designed interiors, including furniture, materials, and art objects. The project illustrates how artisanal elements curated during a collaboration between the firm and the homeowner patrons inherently coalesced into nuanced interiors. Set atop of the stunning Arabella building, overlooking the magnificent Houston skyline, this elegant penthouse includes exquisite materiality, detailing, and craftsmanship, from special sliding doors, a uniquely positioned curiosity cabinet, and stunning objets d’art that are tailored to each room, which all together create wonderful stories that connect the residents with an eye for their own collections, their vision and ambiance for each space, and the energy within their home. Along with presenting the building containing the penthouse and the residence itself, renowned writer and journalist Saxon Henry exquisitely introduces readers to each maker as a character in a story. Each space elicits its own experience.
