The project is a townhouse built in 1851, located in the Stuyvesant Park neighborhood, Manhattan. The owners decided to split the house into two parts. Our team designed the top floors of the building. Ingo Maurer (http://www.ingo-maurer.com/) was part of the process as the lighting designer. To create two equal parts the building had to be fully renovated, new steel structure had to be installed as well as new electrical, plumbing and HVAC systems. On top of the three story building we added a 620 sq ft penthouse. Now the upper apartment consists of three floors containing kitchen, dining and living room, two bedrooms, office, family room, bathroom, master bedroom, master bathroom and three generous terraces. The rear façade was updated as a large glass façade. The glass panels used are inhabited by LEDs that lit the façade from the inside giving it a mystic glow at night. Other sophisticated lighting designs were incorporated into the project such as the “Schlitz” poking out of the ceiling in the kitchen. Paul Warchol took pictures of the final result.
