NEW YORK, NY
An art collector purchased this apartment in an old Life Saver factory and asked that we rid it of its staid interior renovation and reinvigorate the space with a materiality that points to the age of its former life. Our work begins by opening the primary space as a gallery for the owner’s art collection. The Family Room is surrounded in vertical roasted poplar boards and an identical ceiling that bends up and fans out into the Gallery. A new Kitchen of concrete, white lacquer, back-painted glass and roasted poplar greets visitors across from the entrance to the apartment.
