Photographers Ines van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, combining a pair of lofts in a former ice house, sought an expansive space that would interpret and evoke artists’ lofts of the 1970s. Sachs Lindores brought a lively understanding of that period and its artifacts, custom designing—in tandem with Descience Lab—millwork and furniture Sachs Lindores also found--or created--unusual objects reflecting the period.
Park Avenue Apartment
An adventure in collecting as well as architectural intervention, this Park Avenue apartment is enriched by antique European and Indian ornament, art and furniture, as well as contemporary works of art. Beginning with a rigorous layout, Sachs Lindores built, incrementally, an atmosphere reflecting the best of complex middle European pattern and patina, attuned to the client’s own ancestral roots.
Portsmouth, RI House
This Rhode Island house, winner of the 2011 Palladio Award, renews the early spirit and traditions of the Shingle Style. Like the facades of McKim, Meade & White, and the interiors of Edwin Lutyens—both turn of the twentieth century architectural masters looked to by Sachs Lindores—asymmetry and function forge a family dwelling for English clients. Dramatic light and shadow permeate interior spaces meticulously detailed with historic accuracy.
9th Street Brownstone
A house displaying a significant collection of contemporary art spurred Sachs Lindores to orchestrate major pieces of 20th century furniture. The swooping Kagan sofa—upholstered in its original fabric—cuts a swathe through the glamorous understatement of an 1860s living parlor. Several pronounced periods of architecture furniture and art come together in a living space at once functional and elegant.
16th Street Brownstone
This palatial Herter Brothers house vibrates with life, expressed by colorful pattern and material, from intricate Turkish mosaics to printed calligraphic figures, embellished, in turn, by late 19th century luster tiles and ceramics. For this variegated array, Sachs Lindores rearranged and redefined the rooms to augment a sense of scale and grandeur appropriate to the late 19th century.
Eastern Shore Residence, MD
The owners of this Victorian farmhouse in Maryland already possessed a wide collection of early American furniture which they wished to use in a comfortably updated context, which included reconfiguring rooms to accommodate a growing family of grandchildren. Sachs Lindores referenced classics of 20th century decoration, notable for their relaxed, comfortable air.
Miami Beach Apartment
Into an ultra modern Miami Beach apartment with spectacular view, Sachs Lindores imported buoyant midcentury biomorphic French and Brazilian furniture. As architectural consultants, they reorganized the spaces and designed millwork.
E 70th Street Residence
This early iconic William Lescaze house was purchased with all the architect’s original furniture. Sachs Lindores changed uses of rooms to meet the client’s more contemporary needs, while conserving and enlivening the unique atmosphere of house and contents with new fabrics and works of art.
Shelter Island Residence
Hotelier Andre Balazs’ Shelter Island house is an early American renovation with Japanese-inspired spareness. Christian Liaigre’s wooden furniture, unknown in the United States at the time, interprets a Minimalist aesthetic with new warmth. Custom handmade furniture and lighting add individuality to the ensemble.
Moab Utah Resort
For an astounding natural setting outside Salt Lake City and Arches National Park and Canyon Lands, Sachs Lindores—in collaboration with Descience Lab--were commissioned to design a modern-day hotel as nucleus of a newly planned town. The spectacular desert landscape invited an integrated indoor-outdoor vision of the architecture, with terraced rooms overlooking the almost lunar landscape, while maintaining a sense of privacy and comfort.
Short Hills, NJ Residence
The interior of this 1930s Colonial Revival house in Milburn, New Jersey was in need of a complete overhaul. We decided to redesign it as a space for a very contemporary family, opening up the family room onto the kitchen, reconfiguring the master suite to include a sky-lit walk-in closet and window seat. A palette of deep neutrals formed a backdrop for modern masters--Jeanneret, Perriand, Royere and Prouve.
