Here is some information about this apartment. Stair railing made of Lego bricks is the first most attractive feature of this Chelsea apartment. It adds one more example to the creative Lego works we’ve seen so far, like the Abondatus Gigantus or the Lego Conference Room Table.This contemporary Manhattan living space which is named the Marks/Caride Residence, uses the creative ideas and thoughts of both the team at I-Beam Architecture And Design and the couple living here – Melissa Marks and Vicente Caride says: “The architects and owners worked together to develop a plan that would remain open while creating order amongst a variety of domestic and professional activities.
A series of sliding walls each weighing over 500 lbs serve as alternating studio and exhibition walls that reveal or conceal different areas (studio, office and living room) according to the time of day and who is using the space.”
A walnut design line is used in the apartment which is becoming part of each space – shelving system, stairs, door jambs, window sills, desks and counter tops and which is also providing the white space with an elegant collection of focus points, depending on the features of each space.
One more attraction Carrera marble is introduced to add a classy and decent touch in the kitchen, while the walls were decorated with Melissa’s drawings. The credit for 20,000 Lego bricks shaping the staircase by one of New York’s two licensed LEGO Artists – Sean Kenney. The creative team says, “the final design is composed of an evolving series of additions made by the people who live, work and play in the space.”
