New York City
Hindered by the building’s generic tower plan that divided the apartment
into a series of confined spaces, our scheme attempts to open the space along
two key axes as well as emphasize the views over Central Park and the Hudson.
A thick millwork zone adds depth and definition to the passage between the two
major rooms. Grounded by a dark wood floor, elevated planes of the countertop
and island contrast in a white, crystalline structural glass.
As one recedes toward the smaller spaces of the core, views diminish and
disappear. The surfaces dematerialize into translucent, reflective planes of
terrazzo slabs and thick glass mosaics.
