At the top of the hub, the living room offers dramatic views of our changing city. At night, mechanized shades can be deployed to create a black box, perfect for movie-watching. The custom bookcase in the foreground has a stained white oak on the exterior and a glossy orange lacquer finish inside. The sectional is “Harry” by B & B Italia.
