Project Description

The deft deployment of lighting and sumptuous materials serves to create a stunningly rich, yet simple living space in this Manhattan triplex. Originally three separate apartments in a pre-war building, this new, ultra modern manifestation uses refined details and a restricted color palette to create a cohesive environment. Elements, such as the wall of floor-to-ceiling cabinets that traverses the living room and kitchen, unify the residence while respecting the independent character of each room.

The original project for a duplex was completed in 2002. In 2008, the client purchased the apartment above the existing duplex for the dual purpose of a guest suite and retreat where the client can work. The wall to the right of the entrance appears to be a solid white lacquer wall, however upon closer inspection it opens up to reveal a colorful wet bar and provide access to the bedroom and bathroom beyond. These playful moments of surprise occur throughout the apartment and provide a counterpoint to the refined aesthetic.
