West End Avenue Apartment

A great design can make something out of nothing.  Take this West End Avenue apartment, for example.  Without losing a single room of the old unit, we added a powder room, a laundry room, and a home office.  On top of that, we also increased storage and open space.  Our new layout is not only more efficient; it’s also more beautiful.

In the foyer, new coat closets flank an alcove bench for removing shoes.  Activating the center hall, metallic barn doors slide along a long shared track.  Across from these, a room-dividing bookshelf glows with translucent panels.  Seamless ash kitchen cabinets smooth out the once lumpy room.  And lastly, new acoustically-isolated bamboo floors unify the various rooms into a consonant whole.
