Parkview is a private penthouse overlooking New York city and the trees of Central Park. The room is actually a cross section...the corner of a modern room, with tall ceilings and a partial loft. A faux staircase is partly hidden behind a wall of travertine stone. Exposed steel beams and ceiling trusses hold moveable spotlights, and the natural stained, hand-laid flooring adds another contemporary touch. A tall corner window wall captures the view.
Mark Turpin's friend, the incomparable Brooke Tucker, provided this aerial view of New York's Central Park, so he wanted to use it for something special...Parkview.
This room setting was designed to be securely fixed upon the wall at home or in an office, or it can be displayed on a table or bookcase. Constructed of solid pine, birch plywood, basswood, plastic, glass, acrylic, fabric, stain ribbon, paper and paint, with room access via removable frame; suitable for wall hanging or table display.
Room dimensions: 22" wide, 7" deep, 16" high; frame dimensions: 27" wide, 21" high; overall depth: 8.5"; 1:12 scale. Sold.
Parkview was featured in the Gallery section in Miniature Collector magazine in the February 2011 issue.
