Architectural and interior design of a 3,000sf apartment combination in Midtown West, converting three 2-bed apartments and a 20' stretch of hallway into one home. We designed an open floor plan for much of the home to take advantage of the sweeping panoramic views from the Statue of Liberty, across the Hudson and north.
Enter the apartment and walk down a long hall, facing a custom water feature between you and the views behind. Once through the hall you're in one large open space with panoramic views downtown, across the Hudson River, and uptown at once. With three kitchens to work with, we kept one south facing kitchen, converted one to a master bathroom with views of midtown from the shower, and converted another into a sauna, so the client could end their days there while looking out towards the Statue of Liberty. The master bedroom suite occupies one wing for privacy, with a bedroom, bathroom, office, and walk in closet.
We designed a stone fireplace at counter height to shape the space while keeping sight lines clear between the dining area and lounging area. A ribbon of millwork around the foot of the windows does multiple duty as HVAC cover, cabinetry, and cushioned window seats low to the floor.
