The Cabin / Hotel
Fashion Executive. Madison Avenue, UES, New York
Similar unassuming front, however roof is angled towards the front.
The same building number style and a similar front door awning. However our awning is longer and angled; split in the middle to force the rain to cascade to the sides of the door like a waterfall.
The sides of the cabin gives character and causes it to appear at one with the surrounding nature.
A similar half-circle driveway, but our house is less alarming / unassuming.
The multiple stairs to the front deck of the house would have a recessed foundation to appear as if the house is floating / suspended, like this.
The house surrounded on three sides (except back) by a wooden deck / porch akin to this. Except the deck will not be glossy, the the vertical posts of the railing will be simple brushed metal.
The vertical posts of the railing would be akin to this.
The front door's function and feel, but no frosted glass, solely mahogany.
Gas fireplaces are embedded into the left and right walls of the lobby. They extend to the back of the cabin.
A similar steel structure / frame design that allows the bedrooms above to hang from the floor above them, rather than rest on the floor beneath them.
High velocity jet HVAC (heat, ventilation and air-conditioner) nozzles for the ceiling of the first floor.
On the first floor are four 5.5 foot deep square sitting areas. Arranged as a 2x2 square, each area has a TV embedded into an outer wall, and the walls of the entire area are covered in leather. The first 2 areas solely have a surrounding couch with a central circular in-ground fireplace, the latter 2 have six chairs that surround a pool table.
On the first floor, after the four sunken living areas, contains an open space (not sunken). Within this space, 8 feet from the last sunken area is a chrome cylinder 1 foot in diameter coming up 3 feet from the floor. Atop the cylinder is a touch-screen, that displays the list of wines contained in the circular wine cellar. Selecting a wine from the screen causes the circular wine-rack to raise from the floor, surrounding the person and entire open area.
The circular area within the wine rack surround, can also descend into the wine room. The wine rack descends a circular glass walled room, the wine within the temperature and humidity controlled glass section. Tables are placed between two sidewalls that divide the circular glass wall. These tables are used to accommodate a few groups of people for a wine tasting.
The wine rack that ascends from the floor is a basic metal skeleton. On top is the marble slab that was previously the floor (lifts as the wine rack raises). As the rack descends into the glass walled area, the marble slab contains refrigerator like seals along it's bottom edge. That air-tight seal allows the glass region to be temp and humidity controlled, as the central sitting area remains a comfortable temperature.
Another potential feel for the basic wine rack skeleton.
The center of the skeleton will display wine bottles akin to this. Beneath these bottles will be cabinets. Some contain wine barrels and other related things.
The feel of the sub-level wine cellar would be similar to this
But the walls and spacers of the wines will be as clean as this.
The first floor kitchen (after the wine area) may have a similar feel.
Potential bedroom door feel (if so, the inside of the door will be frosted glass while the outside is mahogany).
MTI Baths Elise 3 MTCT-128
Each of the five bedrooms on the 2nd floor has a bathroom on the right upon entering the room (like a hotel room layout). The bathroom has a similar layout and feel as this. Though instead the bathtub is the larger Elise 4 with invisible jacuzzi holes, sink is double vanity, the toilet is between shower / tub. The shower is all glass promoting an "open" feel, the plumbing of which is contained in tiled slabs hanging from the ceiling. -- Shower: 2 steam heads beneath a shower-width bench against the left wall, 15 pivotable water heads temperature balanced by 2 chrome digital control knobs. The heads include: 1 gentle face, 4 intense rain, 3 back-shoulders (2 gentle, 1 intense), 3 body-back (2/1 intensity), 3 body-front (2/1 intensity), 1 hand-held (feminine).
Although the bathrooms on the second floor has another layout / feel, the room is larger / as spacious as this.
Each of the five bedrooms on the 2nd floor has a walk-in closet on the left upon entering the room (opposite of and the same size as the bathroom).
Each of the five suites on the 3rd floor has a bathroom on the 4th floor. The bathroom's feel is similar to this except: the walls are not angled and there are more showerheads (15 arranged and controlled as the 2nd floor bathrooms). The water of the shower's floor, flows into in-ground whirlpool that meets the cabin's all-glass back wall. The back wall contains smart glass like the rest of the house, allowing the wall to become opaque white if privacy is desired. If not, the persons in the jacuzzi can enjoy the mountain view as they relax.
Glass back-wall of the cabin. The 4th floor contains a deck that extends the entire width of the house / cabin. The inner wall of that deck is also all glass, but due to the deck the glass wall is pushed back / not flush with the rest of the cabin's glass wall. On the 4th floor the back wall displays the 5 bathroom and kitchen pairs of each 2-floor suite. The 3rd floor, and 2nd floor views the inside of the 5 suites and 5 bedrooms. The entire back wall of the cabin has a smart-glass layer so that each guest can control their privacy.
The 2nd floor balcony extends more than the 3rd floor. Accommodating the 2nd floor balcony's reclining beach chairs, while 3rd floor beach chairs are on their respective 4th floor decks. The arrangement also allows those on the 2nd floor balcony to look up and chat with those on the 3rd floor balcony. As those on the 3rd floor balcony overlook everything (omniscient perspective).
The 4 circular fire-pits along the back deck are spaced evenly between 5 circular tables angled on opposite sides of the fire-pits. Creating the visual shape of a "W" with fire-pits between the points. That arrangement allows 5 more tables to be added within the peaks of the "W" and outer edge (an upside "W" configuration that overlays the previous "W"), to accommodate nights where more desire to dine / sit outside. Total seating: 40. Beyond the fire-pits are couches and chairs with a similar feel as above but away from the house / cabin.
On the back deck, after the fire-pits and couches / chairs is the infinity pool. The inner wall of the pool (the edge that connects with the deck) is glass. It allows the sub-floor (basement / office) to be seen from inside the pool, as the pool's blue water can also be seen from the office. The pool's lighting is on the ceiling / beneath the deck, and shines through that glass wall creating a diffused glow.
The lighting effect of the pool's lighting is similar to this but more evenly spread (diffused), and the tiles within the pool are black.
Akin to this is the are 2 square jacuzzis that meet the right and far edges of the pool. The jacuzzis and their edges disappear in the pool due to the black tiles, it promotes minimalism. However the left edge of the jacuzzi and the wall between the two jacuzzi has a width of one foot. To allow walking along the edge. Upon turning on the jacuzzi the water level drops, dividing the jacuzzi water from the pool's. But the pool is also heated.
Basement feel, but a circular driveway surrounds a circular glass-walled office. The parking area is the entire width and length of the house, w/ cars parked at an angle so that upon driving around they pull directly into a space. Such a parking arrangement creates a view from within the office that appears like a showroom. The ceiling instead uses low-energy LED downlights.
The flush feel of the garage door, but mahogany. Details: 6 solid-steel sliding panels with mahogany facade, military-built blast-door grade (20' tall 1 ton each). Operation: ball-bearing bottom edge (ball transfer), overhead curved L-shaped guide rail; a six-stage hydraulic cylinder along top-front wall pulls center panel forcing adjacent panels to stack as they slide along the guide rail. Close: pneumatic actuator pushes stacked panels against the front wall, a middle-front wall pneumatic actuator pushes each panel towards center, a hydraulic beneath the front-floor guide groves lowers the front grove creating water-tight seal using the panel weight. Bracing the back of each panel are vertical steel rods that raise from floor and ceiling. The doors can handle 100 tons of water pressure.
the feel, arrangement, color. -- 10 washers + 10 dryers, stainless steel.
