Our project on Fifth Avenue was a unique renovation for the team. The apartment still had much of the original pre-war layout and detailing. Our clients downsized to this 2 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom so they could be closer to family in the city. Dimensionally, the space worked for them and they saw this as an opportunity to inject some contemporary design into their lives as they settled into retirement.
The previous owners had worked with a design team who had created bold design statements throughout the home. Our client wanted to put their own stamp on the space without doing an extensive gut renovation and enlisted us to create a new design which respected the history of the apartment and their small collection of antique furniture and art. Additionally, our client decided to add central air conditioning during the process, which our team designed, coordinated & installed.
We designed and built a custom wood and stone buffet furniture piece for the dining room in an effort to stay within the client’s budget. We also worked tirelessly to source nightstands form Spain for the Primary Bedroom after dealing with extended manufacturing delays.
We used bold, saturated colors in the kitchen, dining, and circulation spaces to act as a rich backdrop for their art collection. We balanced this with more natural, lighter tones in the living room and bedroom areas to bring much-needed restfulness and tranquility.
We'd love to learn more about your project and the opportunity to discuss our role as the design + build team.
