    Default Organic design

    The billowing shapes in the Upper West Side home of Lucy Waring were created with advanced computer software in the mid-1990s and made from materials like fiberglass, concrete and stainless steel


    The apartment was not designed for Ms. Waring, an artist, but its materials concrete, fiberglass, stainless steel resonated with her work.


    The apartment's pivoting walls, hidden cubbyholes, stainless steel toilets and orange fiberglass bathtub delighted her.


    "It was cheerful," Ms. Waring said. "It was uplifting. I liked the fun of it." She bought the place for $1.6 million in 2006.


    The apartment, which was featured in the Home section of The New York Times soon after its completion in 1997, was designed in a passionate collaboration between the architects, Sulan Kolatan and William Mac Donald, and the previous owners, Beatrix Ost, a sculptor, and Ludwig Kuttner, a textile executive.


    Ms. Waring has learned that the apartment needs special care. "You have to have all the exact products: the wood floor freshener and the stainless steel cleaner and the concrete floor refresher and the fiberglass cleaner that makes it soft and shiny."

    It's very weird, and I like it. I could have lived in this when I was single. My husband would despise it. My only complaint is that it's a tad cavelike.

    Hate it. It makes me feel queasy for some reason and I agree, that bathroom is very sinister.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    I know for some reason I feel like that bathtub would swallow me up...And what's with the pivoting walls? I'd actually like to see that.
