My overarching vision is to create spaces that allow multiple interpretations,” says Manhattan designer @stephaniegoto. “That’s the beauty of architecture—it depends on who is looking at it.” Take, for instance, the sparkling jewel-box workspace she devised for herself and her staff on Union Square. A caretaker’s shed that was once part of creative-polymath Jean-Paul Goude’s apartment, the 1,500-square-foot structure has been dressed with custom mirrored black stainless steel that reflects and refracts the skyline, “so the building isn’t static.” Indoors is a dialogue of hard edges and organic accents. The grain of the Douglas-fir floor floods the space like rippling water. (The same honey-blond planks have been used for shelves that hold Goto’s collection of plumb bobs.) “I’m not afraid of decoration, but you can manipulate materials to express that,” Goto says, noting, with a laugh, that the floor’s grain is “my equivalent of wallpaper.” See inside the space via the link in our profile.
