Water front condos are great, especially when they’re adjacent to Penn’s Landing, near Old City and in Philadelphia’s Historic District. Before this Pier 3 redesign, the client had golds and deep reds on the walls, a red sofa and traditional rugs. The Henck Design team knew immediately that the space had to be transformed in a lighter, cleaner direction. Because of the relatively small size of the condo, the design challenge was not only to make the best possible use of limited space, but to make it feel bigger too.
The aesthetic of the water was the perfect inspiration for the home decor. The custom wooden case piece perfectly lights beautiful antiques of the homeowners. The interior design was never meant to be nautical, but it now echoes the Pier 3 sensibility.
