Alex P White | 平静和优雅的居家氛围 首
Alex P White亲自操刀为一栋高端公寓大楼设计了样板间，裸露的混凝土天花板、灰色石膏墙和香草色装饰。
American designer Alex P White has created a model unit for a high-end condominium building in Manhattan that features exposed concrete ceilings, grey plaster walls and vanilla-coloured decor.
The show apartment is located within 196 Orchard, a recently completed 11-storey condominium building in the Lower East Side neighbourhood. The building contains 89 units, from studios to four-bedroom apartments.
Alex P White是一名室内设计师，在纽约经营着一家同名工作室。对于一套64平方米的单卧室公寓来说，运用中性色调的饰面和装饰，创造了平静和优雅的氛围。
Alex P White, an interior designer who runs an eponymous New York studio, was tasked with creating a model unit that would appeal to potential buyers. For a one-bedroom apartment totalling 686 square feet (64 square metres), White used finishes and decor in neutral tones to create a calm and elegant atmosphere.
Upon entering, one steps into an open-plan kitchen and living room. A glass door leads to a generous terrace featuring gilded bronze bricks, charred-wood planter boxes and concrete dining furniture.
Inside the apartment, concrete ceilings were left unfinished, lending a raw aesthetic to the space. Adding to the effect are plaster walls with a light grey finish that mimics concrete.
The kitchen – designed to merge style and functionality – features quartz countertops, walnut and lacquered cabinetry, and Miele appliances. Behind the stove, the designer integrated a dark backsplash made of Nero Marquina marble.
吧台部分搭配弧形木质靠背椅，精心挑选的装饰品包括Aldo Rossi的不锈钢茶壶和埃托雷·索特萨斯(Ettore Sottsass)的陶瓷花瓶增添了些许的趣味性。
A bar is lined with wooden stools from Coil + Drift. Other pieces of carefully chosen decor include a stainless steel tea kettle by Aldo Rossi and a ceramic vase by Ettore Sottsass.
"I decided to bring the ceiling finish down the walls, wrapping all the rooms in the same textural drama," the designer said. "This makes the spaces feel cosy and epic at the same time, while the moody palette really emphasises the views to the terrace."
The kitchen looks upon a narrow living room with a mix of shapes and textures. One wall is lined with a built-in sofa wrapped in Belgian linen and a travertine lounge table – both designed by White. Above the sofa is a series of ivory wall hangings by Los Angeles artist Mary Little.
"I decided on an unfurnished approach for the project – opting instead for custom built-ins that extend and respond to the architecture, while providing most of the function for the space without the visual clutter," the designer said.
The opposing wall features a large walnut shelving unit designed by White. A Wiggle cardboard chair by Frank Gehry adds a sculptural touch to the space.
"Well-selected art and design objects should do more than simply decorate – they should add narrative," said White. "I used a few iconic vintage pieces mixed with contemporary objects that I thought had a significant dialogue with the recent past."
In the bedroom, the designer created a platform bed with a headboard that rises to the ceiling. A slender black cabinet by Brooklyn designer Stephen Bukowski contrasts with the light tones that dominate the space.
整个公寓的照明采用LED灯带。其他照明设备包括Richard Sapper设计的床头灯和Tim Rundle设计的Bloom台灯。
Throughout the apartment, thin LED strips are integrated into the ceilings. Other lighting fixtures include bedside lamps by Richard Sapper and a Bloom table lamp by Tim Rundle for Resident.
"The right light playing over textural and seductive materials will always elevate," said White.
The bathroom features marble floors and wainscoting, quartz countertops and a lacquer vanity. Milky white Turkish marble was used for the shower. Cove-lit cabinetry provides storage space.
