Good Morning All!
Sally and I are delighted to be featured in the Summer Issue of Boston Common magazine. (Find us on page 103.) We were asked by it’s editor to review and comment on a property that is currently for sale at One Charles Street South, in the Back Bay of Boston. They are the only two side by side penthouse units on the market in Boston today. Of course they offer spectacular views of the city, particularly from their private decks and patios.
Sally and I explored the notion of combining the units. Our design concept was to create a grand centrally located foyer/gallery with private family spaces to it’s left and public/gathering/entertainment spaces to it’s right. Each would have it’s own terrace/patio space.
Included in the story was a sketch I did, showing a fanciful notion of how the public space might appear – that being quite modern and open, with one space flowing into the next, with areas defined by ceiling treatments and light fixtures.
We imagined the foyer, the entire penthouse for that matter, in two very distinctly different styles. The first being quote modern, in the manner of Richard Hallberg.
The other, quite surprisingly, more traditional with today’s flair, as in the work of John Saladino.
In either case, the overall space lends itself to a series to wonderfully created enfilades, as in the old classic French style.
The listing is being handled by William Montero, of Warren Residential Group, 617, 312-7232.
Have a wonderful day!
