New York City, New York
Located near Washington Square Park, this penthouse apartment is surrounded by exterior balconies on the north and west sides with fantastic views to the city. The interior of the apartment lacked natural light and the poor condition of the existing doors and windows required their replacement. The building is landmarked, which limited the possibilities of changing the fenestration. We installed a series of large skylights in the living and bedroom ceilings that provided the light and openness the apartment desperately needed. A simple white color palette is juxtaposed with rich, colorful and luminous furniture pieces. Cut crystal lighting fixtures along with shimmering white and yellow gold tiled surfaces provide a dynamic element as the light moves thru the space. A new stainless steel fireplace enclosure was crafted along with a new kitchen, plumbing fixtures and air conditioning system.
