Thomas Pheasant's design concept for #28 consists of a chain of wooden boxes that are transitions into each living space of the apartment. These boxes frame the entry into each room and push the living areas and your vision toward the windows along Central Park. This is a repeated element throughout the apartment. Elegant Anigre veneer in a rich golden-brown shade is the millwork used throughout the apartment and even inside the interior doors. The floors are a custom Crema Marfil marble with neutral area rugs throughout. The contemporary furnishings are also all designed by Thomas Pheasant. Thomas is known as the master of the neutral palette.

There is a dehumidifier in the system to protect the fine art. The recessed lighting design is consistent throughout and offers an even wash of different levels of ambient light.
