Two architects are attached to this barrel-vaulted loft in Phoenix, Arizona, designed by Robert Starkovich in 1964 and recently revamped by owner Vince Scarano.
The one-bedroom home occupies the top floor of Olympus condominium in the city’s central corridor. Scarano has embraced a brutalist vibe for his renovations, sparked by the dramatic concrete ceiling, refinished in a walnut shell blast with a matte, ‘velvety’ texture.
Velvet chairs and furniture, finished in a mix of leather and textiles, add to the luxe 1970s vibe across its 1,675 sq ft interiors. Shiny copper piping is left exposed, and gold wall panels have been installed in the bedroom area for extra bling. The vintage-inspired result is OTT and described as ‘newtro’ by agent Jennifer Schaefer of Realty One Group, which is listing the Phoenix property for $670,000.
