Clinton Library apartment
The Clinton Library apartment is a 5,000 square foot glass-walled "executive suite" located atop the Clinton Library in downtown Little Rock, Arkansas. The apartment has been compared to Mies van der Rohe's Farnsworth House. Kaki Hockersmith designed the interior space of the apartment.
David Leopoulos, childhood friend of the president has said of the apartment, "It's awesome. Stereo, big-screen TV, lots of technology. It's really neat. ... And it's very modern. Ethnic art. And the view is incredible. It's like floating in air." The apartment has two bedrooms. Attached to the apartment is a large walkout terrace. Architect Richard Olcott has said of the terrace: "I expect him [Clinton] to be chipping golf balls into the river."
A private apartment is also incorporated into the George H.W. Bush Library in College Station, Texas.
