Project 1209: Up In The Air : At Home In A Mid-Rise.
This Phoenix Condo Is A Retreat For Clients + Their Art.
The Optima Biltmore Towers is a prestigious urban community right in the heart of the Camelback Corridor in Phoenix, AZ. This two bedroom, two bath residence created by interior designer Michael A. Thomas, FASID was designed from the beginning to be timeless, functional but most important, to be comfortable for the clients.
The clients wanted a space that would reflect their tastes in style but keep it functional despite being in just under 1,400 square feet. The success to making this work is the warm light amber and yellow tones on the walls and floors that weave their way thru out the interiors of this city apartment.
With an evolving collection of art an important part of the design criteria, the clients had to make choices since finding enough wall surfaces wasn't always easy considering the large expanses of glass that overlook the Biltmore Fashion Park and beyond, the Piestewa Peak.
According to one of the owners, "What makes living at the Optima Biltmore Towers so great is the proximity to the AMC "dine-in" theatre, a short walk to True Foods and the Apple Store, all within 5 minutes walk from door to door." But it is also the amenities like the pool and spa on the roof level that affords 360 degree views of the valley, two BBQ grills, plus teak dining tables and chairs.
