Upper West Side Apartment
Originally, this Upper West Side apartment was a warren of small rooms and smaller hallways. By merging the rooms and halls, we improved the circulation while enlarging the spaces. A cramped kitchen, once buried in the dark middle of the building, emerges spacious and functional, now with natural light from the living room. The master bathroom is convertible: a run of sliding teak and ribbed glass doors close off the component functions. But when opened, they convert the various wet spaces into one big suite.
