New York, New York, 2001-2003

The program was to renovate a classic ten room apartment to accommodate a young couple and their two small children. The basic layout and traditional details were well thought out and executed. The main problems to deal with were a kitchen that was dated and dark, bathrooms that were unsightly and shabby. The library was basically a hallway from the grand entry foyer to the dining room. The master bedroom was lacking in storage and lacked the grace and style of the other grand rooms. The program solution was to reconfigure the kitchen to include a dining banquette with a large window.

The problem of the library as hall was eliminated by making a very large combination dining library united by wood paneling and storage units. The master bedroom was enlarged to incorporate a study that could be closed off for occasional guests with lots of built-in storage.
