This contemporary apartment is inspired by water, sand and sky. New York architect Lee Mindel, a confirmed modernist, has a classic description of a house, which is “a machine for living.” Such is the case with this apartment – with a unique design -, overlooking the ocean in Palm Beach, Florida. Now keep scrolling and fall madly in love with this modern apartment, with a beautiful mid-century floor lamp.
The architect Mindel gutted the 2,800-square-foot space for an entirely new layout, consisting of an open living and dining area, a kitchen and breakfast area, three bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths.
His designs for the apartment’s luxurious custom rugs were also inspired by the beach: The one in the living area mimics the ripple pattern a stone makes when dropped in water, while those in the bedrooms have striations that appear to be drawn in sand.
“Glass is made of water and sand,” Mindel explains, “and I have an affinity for Scandinavia.”
“We always have a wonderful exchange of ideas,” says Lee Mindel. In the end, the apartment’s fusion of architectural rigor and material sensuality was not lost on its owners.
