“We played matchmaker and paired them up with different designers in the house, and we let them work together on the designer’s vision for the piece and invent it on their own,” says Terrebonne. “The transformation that (the house) has undergone, the makeover from what it looked like less than a year ago, is absolutely stunning, and I think it really shows the power of design and how you can transform a house.”

The focal point of the home is the Mark Cunningham-designed living room, whose open floor plan allows guests to marvel at its keen-eyed design cues and artwork by Vik Muniz, courtesy of Galeria Nara Roesler, while having space to access the library, terrace and dining room which are telescoped from the bedroom.
