Called Heaven 17 because this piece went into a seventeenth floor Warwick Tower apartment in the 'Medical District' of Houston, Texas. Built, polished and test assembled in the workshop and delivered as disassembled 'flat-pack' parts to the location. It took just over two days for two of us to carry parts up to the apartment in a service lift and assemble the unit in its allocated space.
The piece is built in a room 4,152 mm long by 2440 mm wide, or approximately 9' 10" long X 8' wide. It was impossible to frame the piece when photographed from the front even with my widest angle lens; the only shots I could get that would show most of the piece were shot through the doorway into an adjoining bedroom.
