The living spaces are refined lofts — open and airy with private rooms to one end and public at the other. The interior is all about open space, the living room ceilings are 20 feet up, and unique translucent doors spread natural light throughout the space. The doors simply roll into the wall when not needed. Radiant floors efficiently heat the building.
