West End Avenue Apartment

A good design makes something from nothing.  For example, we added a home office, a laundry room, and a powder room to this West End Avenue apartment without trading out a single room.  In fact, we even increased open space and storage.  At the entry, coat closets flank an alcove bench for removing shoes.  Metallic barn doors slide along a shared track down the center hall.  Opposite these, we backed an integrated bookshelf with translucent panels.  Seamless ash cabinetry smoothes out a bumpy kitchen.  And lastly, new acoustically-isolated bamboo floors unify the many rooms.
