Rejecting size for substance, this warehouse conversion carved out a landscaped courtyard allowing a connection to nature and a break-out outdoor space. With its new coherent layout, the unique interiors introduced luxurious materials such as the burgundy and dusty pink Breccia Rosso marble in the kitchen. A double-height void links floors drawing the eye up and the light in. The design elegantly marries deep red steel frames, brass-hued curtains and the tropical greenery beyond. Sophisticated and comfortable, Rosso Verde by Carter Williamson.
