Interiors by the legendary Thierry Despont showcase his genius in how he cuts a floor plan. This oversized and phenomenal, well laid out one bedroom plus one bathroom and powder room is set apart by it’s south-facing exposure with gracious proportions and a ceiling height in excess of 11 feet, alongside masterfully conceived interiors.
