a secret passage leading to a powder room.
The stairway opens to a 20-foot-high great room.
King and queen's master suites will each consist of a large bedroom with a bathroom and a balcony overlooking the great room. The queen's room will also have a drawbridge at its entrance, should invaders try to capture her.
On the fourth floor are four more bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, each named and designed after a chess piece..
The roof will be outfitted with a wood-heated hot tub, a greenhouse, and an outdoor fireplace. Guests can climb the
60-foot-high turret and look out over the 20-acre property.
The Gig at Exit 33
Verona, New York
The Gig, a 5,100 square foot rock and roll themed night club,
part of the Exit 33 project at Turningstone Casino and Resort, is truly an underground club in which the fans become a participant in the show.
To enter the club, you must first descend a grand staircase
covered with a patchwork oriental rug from Northern Ireland,
reminiscent of the Grateful Dead, and walk by a 30 foot high
“Wall of Sound,” made of racks and racks of vintage speakers.
The fans are immersed in graffiti-covered walls and can shoot some pool next to the sound mixing booth while being “Blown Away” by Maxell’s iconic photographic advertisement. Specially licensed from the photographer, Stephen Steigman’s Estate; it is the most oversized print ever made of the image 17’ long by 7’ high.
The Gig was nominated as a finalist in the Best Nightclub/Lounge category for the 2014 Boutique Design Gold Key Awards for excellence in Hospitality Design.
