Above: Entering into the apartment, you are greeted by walnut double doors. The ultra-luxe hallway is awash in a marble and limestone garden, showcasing gallery walls filled with work by Asian artists. According to Architectural Digest: “a mound of porcelain sunflower seeds is by Ai Weiwei, an anthropomorphic bronze statue by Masayuki Nagare, and a Leigh Wen painting of abstracted waves—are stationed like sentries.
“Nine stepping-stones span a reflecting pool fed by a 32-foot waterfall, a paper-thin sheet of liquid spilling quietly behind a white-onyx stairway lit from within by LEDs. On the far side of the pool is a full-scale wood-and-rice-paper teahouse constructed in Kyoto and assembled on-site by Japanese craftsmen.”
