In this project Andrea Steele and Andrew Deibel collaborate with Joel Sanders architect. From the architects : “The “Nature” of the Nature – Ecology of a Penthouse we appoached this project as one might study ecology as a set of symbiotic systems. Just as nature itself is a collaboration among independent dynamic systems, this penthouse dwelling is formed by the relationship among the existing “found” objects, manmade “natural” elements, and a planted landscape that weaves between. Rethinking the nation of an urban garden, this project introduces a dynamic ground plane, composed of a planted carpet surmounted by wood flooring, which links the penthouse loft with the roof terrace and affords panaromic views of downtown. An interior “sytems” of wood walls and ceillings guides ones movement throught the space and blurs the distinction between private and public spaces. One focuses on the relationship between the various systems such that occupant do not feel contained by the structure, but rather integrated within the overall city evperience.”.
