This 800-square-foot apartment is transformed into a spacious and light-filled place. Focusing on the apartment’s high ceilings and the four exposures, several walls and superfluous elements such as a formal hallway were removed and openings were enlarged. In areas where privacy were desired, full-height glass partitions were added to keep the openness.
High-gloss lacquered ceilings reflect light to brighten every inch. Kitchen cabinets in white, natural fir and two alternating shades of green contrast with marble backsplashes. Historic details such as crown moldings, door surrounds and window frames were restored.
