Entry Description

This striking Magenta main door at the private lobby of this
penthouse apartment is designed and finely crafted with
delicate Oriental fretwork/lattice to double its function as a
divider between the lobby and the main hall, seamlessly
marrying an ancient interior practice and the essentials of
modern living and converting the confluence into a piece of
functional art. The fretwork/lattice is a symmetry of
hexagons reflecting age old Oriental values of industrious
bees. The six-sided shape is also much regarded as a good
luck symbol to many Chinese who wishes family members a
“smooth and safe journey” upon passing through the door.
This door is a perfect fusion representation of elegant mix
of Asian heritage with a cosmopolitan twist that identifies
the best of both worlds in typical urban living.
