Designer Sandra Weingort and her client Joaquín Mollá had a symbiotic vision for this light-filled apartment on NYC's Lower East Side



When designer Sandra Weingort sat down to discuss this project with her client Joaquín Mollá, an Argentinian advertising executive and longtime student of Buddhism, he explained that he wanted her to make his New York pied-à-terre into “the home of a 70-year-old man with an affinity for Japanese Modernism, design, and culture.”


And while Mollá is substantially younger than the age he wished to emulate, the tongue-in-cheek inspiration was clear to Weingort who knew instantly the style her client was after.




Sandra Weingort:

“The space was originally just a new, white box lacking excitement in a newly developed building. But it also had extraordinary light and height, and so much potential to become a cozy home,” Weingort tells Vogue Living of the original framework.
