A complete redesign of the layout was in order when the apartment next door was acquired, nearly doubling the unit’s square footage. The two entrance doors provided a unique opportunity to have both a formal entry foyer and a separate mud room entrance for bicycles and other sports equipment. The design is centered around an open concept entertaining area which includes a chef’s kitchen, living and dining areas, breakfast niche and a library. Separated from the guest suite, the children have their own wing which includes a study and a play room. The master suite includes a wet room, complete with a deep soaking tub, and a separate office. Architectural elements such as the new coffered ceiling relate to the original details in these prewar apartments, but also work with the updated bright and playful palette.
