NYT: Inhabiting without Decorating

Good Bones are Enough. Architects Tom Killian and Françoise Bollack have lived in the El Dorado at 300 Central Park West for sixteen years. Their modest apartment is Letting the Architecture Speak for Itself. The walls are white and nothing is nailed to the walls...

We like this description: Its living room is 24 feet 1 ½ inches long and 14 feet 11 inches wide — a length-to-width ratio very close to that of the golden rectangle, believed by architects, at least since the Renaissance and perhaps as far back as ancient Greece, to produce the most pleasing proportions.

We're totally jealous of the terrace! Check out the slideshow for more images.
