Luxury Outlook 2022
An ambitious exploration into high-end residential markets across the globe.
Triple-mint Four Seasons Residence 32CD combines captivating northern views with a Zen-inspired collection of spaces, incorporating advanced construction & technological features.
Residence 32CD comprises a living/dining area, a superbly equipped Miele kitchen, a sensuous master suite, an office, an en-suite guest bedroom, a home theater, an additional bath and powder bath, plus a laundry room – all with access to all the amenities available to a select group of owners of the Four Seasons Private Residences.
As in the Gulfstream G650 or a Perini Navi yacht, every aspect of this luxurious residence was deliberately designed or chosen to be uniquely the best.
A serenely composed collection of spaces incorporating astounding construction and technological values, Residence 32CD was originally two apartments, joined under a plan conceived by San Francisco architect Fu-Tung Chang and brought to final fruition by the globally recognized interior design and architecture firm ODADA. Essentially a new structure within the original hi-rise volumes, the complete reconstruction and soundproofing of the over 3,500 square foot residence was undertaken by Black Mountain Construction & Development under the guidance of the acoustical management experts at Charles Salter + Associates.
One of the most extraordinary aspects of Residence 32CD is the completely soundproofed home theater by Audiovisions– uniquely, a cinema in the sky– incorporating Dolby Atmos, Kaleidescape Entertainment, and Stratus systems for an unparalleled entertainment experience, acoustically isolated from the rest of the condominium.
As expected, the technology includes a sophisticated Savant system, the gold standard in home automation, in a project that required hundreds of highly skilled man hours plus a meticulous level of oversight daily– from the client himself, the engineers, the designers and the contractor.
Throughout Residence 32CD the ceilings, moldings and light coves are fabricated from tinted, hand-troweled plaster, reviving an ancient Moroccan technique known as Taddekh in the most contemporary way, hand-polished with smooth stones and eliminating the use of paint anywhere in the home.
Walls are upholstered in fabric; the extensive cabinet work is impeccably flush, meeting the floors and ceilings with mere millimeters of clearance. Entire walls of European Sycamore wood panels throughout conceal a variety of functions– from temperature-controlled Miele wine storage to fitted closets– all created from book-matched veneer from the same tree. The extravagant use of granite in the baths and kitchen is unparalleled in both rarity and detailing, with walls paneled in book-matched slabs from floor to ceiling and countertops fabricated to appear monolithic.
An apartment unmatched in quality and scale, Four Seasons Residence 32CD affords a level of luxurious attention to detail which can only be appreciated by the most astute aficionado of rarity and sophistication.
It’s easy to leave your heart in San Francisco. With the city’s iconic cable cars clanging along its rolling hills, San Francisco is a sophisticated sensory assault of sights and sounds. Opera buffs can delight in world-class performances at the San Francisco Opera while art lovers have the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the de Young, for starters.
