Kelly Behun, known for her bold designs, was given the opportunity to work on a New York apartment which is located on 111 West 57th Street. And when the designer found out the history of the original site, she could not stop thinking of music. Initially, Steinway Hall was a place where piano concerts were held.
And today, the 1,228-foot-tall tower is considered the second tallest residential structure among others in the Western Hemisphere. The building was designed by SHoP Architects, and the ELLE DECOR A-Lister worked on the interiors. The space of 4,900-square-foot consists of three bedrooms, and three-and-a-half bathrooms. The apartment, created by Behun is known as 34 Tower Residence and is located on the 34th floor.
For the kitchen, Kelly designed custom cabinetry burnished in hand with plaster and gray oak, and in the guest bedrooms, the wallpapering was hand-painted. The lobby and interior architecture of the building were designed by Studio Sofield and feature guitar strings on the walls and black lacquered doors.
Behun also worked on the design of the great room with huge panoramic windows on Central Park. A hand-knotted rug from silk perfectly matches the greenery from the views of the park. And a mirror installed on a wall mimics the surrounding buildings. The dining area includes a custom banquette, a table, and sculptural yellow chairs. All the vintage items provide a space to sit and watch the spectacular views.
