Program: Redesign an existing 3 bedroom apartment to meet the needs of a couple who no longer have children living at home. The apartment was left empty for many years, and had not been renovated since the late 1940s.

Specific requirements:

  • Comfortable, open area for entertaining parties of 20 or more.
  • Kosher kitchen, with a separate room and bath for live-in help.
  • Private master suite with ample storage, and additional space for overnight guests.
  • Refined quality of rooms to effectively display an extensive art collection.
  • Emphasis on wonderful Central Park views.

We designed a sequence of connected spaces to enhance the feeling of openness and heighten the sense of fluid movement through the apartment. Existing structural elements such as columns and dropped beams helped form large thresholds between spaces and allowed for the organization of distinct art display walls, custom track lights, and cathode up-lights. The greatest challenge of this project was creating as much space as possible by carefully considering the placement of mechanical systems. The clients enjoy the light and airiness, as well as the gracious living environment we provided for them.
