Skylofts’s signature interior looks were the work of Thomas Schoos and Senior Design Partner, Lisa Gill, whose world-renowned firm has designed everything from celebrity homes to some of the country’s top restaurants. Their design approach was, as Thomas puts it, “a journey that inspires and evokes emotion.” The intention was to create a symbiotic design relationship with the architecture – honoring the creative structure, and juxtaposing soft, rounded interiors against the straight edges of the building.
The lush grounds and organics throughout the Skyloft community were the vision of Adam Schwerner. As the son of two artists, Adam has lived with and around creativity since he was a child. What has always occupied him as a landscape designer and maker is the interaction and tension that comes of hybridizing the natural and human made. “There’s a place, as these two things cross paths, where a happy medium happens.” Adam currently works as the Director of Horticulture and Resort Enhancement at the Disneyland Resort.
Jorg’s marque sculpture “Mercury Falling” graces the the Skylofts facade, acting as both public art and an expression of the building. Jorg’s distinct style was developed under the Samuel Beckett mantra of “Learn to fail, fail again, fail better” and honed while studying at the Southern California Art Institute with painter Stephen Douglas and sculptor and designers Kris Cox and Richard White. Jorg is also an established talent in the entertainment industry, working as an art director and production designer for O entertainment. He now teaches at the Laguna College of Art and Design.
Throughout the community, you will encounter beautiful marble and travertine sculptures by Márton Váró. After being awarded the Munkacsy Prize in Hungary, Márton arrived in Orange County on a Fulbright Scholarship to study the relationship between architecture and sculpture. In both Europe and the United States, Márton is known for both large figurative sculptures and his signature compositions of cubes. Márton now works in an open-air studio at UC Irvine, California, carving his unique sculptures for the world to enjoy.
