Similarly, the idea of the large blank wall facing the west was treated as a display of earrings. All different, all special, tinkly objects, but following a loose grid pattern. These little surprises are meant to come up in the rooms at odd idiosyncratic moments. While lying in bed, while standing in the shower, etc. These too, are meant to allow the user to take home something unique and memorable. A few trees dot the roof/sun space and the large curved walls are meant to be composed of some kind of vertical treatment, an homage to the verticality of the empire state building and the park to the south. In effect, this building becomes a pass through for these two points and thus anchor the building to the site.
