What a truly stunning location for this uniquely styled apartment.

It is situated way up inside the pinnacle of the historic ‘Smith Tower’ in Seattle. The Smith Tower itself represents an outstanding example of early Modern Architecture. It was built between 1909 and 1914, and rises through 35 storeys. At the time it was constructed, this was an exceptional architectural achievement. No expense was spared, the window frames are made out of bronze and the exterior faced with the most expensive marble. The quality of the materials used and of the engineering has more than withstood the test of time. This is still a shining example of what inspired a global revolution in the development of Contemporary Architecture.

So it is of no great surprise that the interior decor of the pyramid shaped tower is equally fabulous. Aspects of the original architecture was inspired by the Gothic movement that prevailed throughout Western Europe in the Middle Ages. The feature windows have the typical pointed Gothic arch and the rooms are lofty and spacious with an intriguing network of exposed beams. The design scheme is eclectic to the extreme. Every inch of this apartment reveals fascinating mixes. Stairs and balconies are cast iron and ‘vintage industrial’ in appearance, worktops are made from massive blocks of exquisite marble. The main walls have been left bare to reveal the underlying structure of the tower.

These are painted white and are simply functional, contrasting strongly with carved, heavily decorated screens that are used elsewhere to partition off separate living areas. The latter are probably contemporary with the original build as they are Art Nouveau in style. This apartment is like a journal that marks key moments in the journey of the occupant’s lives. Walking through you are invited to share their experiences, their tastes and the things they treasure the most. Mismatched chairs from totally different eras grace the dining table.

Fine Art pieces live alongside kitchen utensils. There are no rigid design rules here. This family are obviously creative, inventive and highly independent in their style choices. Most importantly this interior unites with a superbly casual elegance that only those with great judgment can achieve.
