Philippe Maidenberg Debuts New Project at Presidential City
The Post Brothers hosted a cocktail party to toast Philippe Maidenberg, the Paris-based architect, interior designer and furnishing designer who just completed his first project in the United States at The Adams Building within historic Presidential City. Philippe Maidenberg is a French, Paris-based architect, interior designer and furnishing designer. Born and raised in France, Maidenberg is best known for his architecture and interior work with hotels throughout Paris.
Guests enjoyed cocktails and passed hors d’Oeuvres while touring the building where Maidenberg designed the lobby, lounge, and model apartments for the newly renovated fourth tower at Presidential City.
Presidential City, one of Philadelphia’s most prestigious 20th century landmarks, epitomizes the vision of crafting a world-class living experience. Creatively reimagined to accommodate the lifestyles of urban-paced commuters and community-minded residents, the high-rise complex invites an identity of cosmopolitan sophistication and stately elegance. With fully renovated features, the residences maintain a Golden era prominence enhanced by contemporary comforts and modern amenities.
According to Hospitality Design Magazine: Maidenberg ‘s favorite architect is Frank Gehry because he “I’ve followed him since the ’80s. He has changed the way of creating. There is great documentary by Sydney Pollack called Sketches of Frank Gehry. A genius films another genius. You can see Gehry creating a building with pieces of carton and scissors like a very clever and sensitive kid would do. Then, the process gets more complicated.” (source)
