We are currently working on a beautiful apartment remodel in the city. The goal of the project was to modify the floor plan such that we could better celebrate the views of the East River and the Wards Island walking bridge. We were tasked to open up the space but still maintain the same amount of storage. In addition, the clients requested a color and pattern driven design solution throughout. The couple was open to the idea of flexible space, which gave us a lot more freedom to incorporate a moving wall solution. While not currently installed, the majority of the new design elements are in place and we couldn't be more happy with the current progress. Read on for the plan development...
The apartment had a strange compartmentalization happening and it was apparent when you entered. Furthermore, the layout was such that the window views became a secondary selling point. Our goal was to open up the space to create a more welcoming and free flowing feel.
With storage solutions considered, we saw an opportunity to create a strong design feature that would greet the couple as they enter the apartment. And here is the new view from the front door...
As requested, significantly more cabinets were added to the kitchen area along with a bar counter. We also upgraded the finishes including a quartzite countertop and a beautiful custom backsplash.
Phase 2 of the project is underway, focusing on furnishings. We will incorporate a few of the couple's existing pieces and upgrade the rest to suit the beautiful new environment. In a few months we expect moving wall and furnishings to be in place so you can see our final vision come to life. See rendering below:
