This renovated nod to 1930’s Arte Moderne architecture sits confidently and cooly among the grand homes of the Greater Avenues. This is one of those rare, wonderful spaces that demands the mixing of good company and good drinks, and far be it from us to refuse.
For those not yet in the know, the style, Arte Moderne or Art Deco, is characterized by clean lines and curved walls and without the elaborate exterior decoration that is so prevalent of the Art Nouveau style. Said clean aesthetics of this particular residence benefits from the Moroccan-inspired front door that invites one to enter and to see what lay beyond.
And what lays beyond is a space that’s undergone a substantial renovation, starting with a reimagined interior, upgraded systems, and an added 2-car garage. The flow from the main living space to the kitchen and dining rooms feels seamless and, once outside, we couldn’t get enough that cozy oasis. The views from the rooftop decks are incredible, and really, our biggest conflict that evening was deciding where to hole up: the rooftop, in the kitchen, or cozied up to the fire. One thing’s for certain, though.
A little celebration among friends in a home as lovely as this a thing of beauty, indeed...
