6NE, THE HUNTINGDON, HOUSTON, TX. - 2007
6NE in the Huntingdon Condominia of River Oaks serves as 4500 square feet of residential art display space with sixth floor panoramic views of downtown Houston.
Rectilinear forms on the interior reflect the towers simple exterior lines and window grid to provide a clean framework for art. Large windows bathe the outer public spaces in natural light while the interior private and utility spaces utilize double sided cabinet walls with glass transoms above for privacy separation allowing the flow of space and light inward. The gypsum ceiling over these clear transoms is seamlessly perforated for A/C return air. The base and corners of walls and doors are minimally detailed with only small reveals, while cabinet panels are tight and flush with concealed hardware. Cabinets remain simple rectangular forms, celebrated with back lighting and suspended from walls. Interior finishes consist of warm renewable wood veneers, cut limestone, and undyed wool carpet, with the addition of stainless steel and earth tone tile textures in the kitchen and bathrooms.
