The Residences at Dockside Gacek Design Group brings a modern, luxurious update to Social Lounge


ituated in the most vi- brant section of Philly, The Residences at Dock- side is easily recognized on the Delaware River due to its unique boat-shaped silhou- ette. We were not only easily influenced by the surround - ing water views, we were also inspired by a nautical theme for the renovation of the Social Lounge. Playing off the 4,100 s/f outdoor terrace that envelopes the Lounge, our objective was to create an open air feel similar to a yacht interior with sophistication and understated luxury. With the historical influ- ences that Philly offers, we referenced historic colors, materials, and industrial de- tails into the design. A Clas- sic design style was created to include comfortable, clean lines with accents of blue tones, mahogany terracotta, gray, light woods and polished finishes. Portal shaped light - ing, leather, linen and canvas fabrics were used to compli- ment the abstract stainless art and sailing photography. Why was this particular job your favorite/most un- usual? This section of Philadel- phia is very competitive from a living perspective with brand new residences under construction. It was impor- tant to use research on living preferences to understand how people want to spend their time. We were able to strategize to strengthen the brand identity to provide a differentiated experience. Founded in 2005, Gacek De- sign Group is owned and oper- ated by Richard Gacek, a 32 year veteran of interior design and architectural consulting. As Principal Designer, Rich- ard is well known for blending natural elements with time- less and classic design. Inspired by historical archi- tecture and influences, Gacek Design Group is mindful of the value of an experience. Every design is carefully researched to create a story that is authentic. This prac- tice always delivers exclusive and elegant interiors that are meaningful and based on lifestyle. Gacek Design Group interiors are designed with key elements that define the way people want to live today…clean, simple lines; casual and adaptable spaces with refinement. MAREJ
