The challenge here was to create a clean canvas for an extensive art collection and refine interior decoration. State-of-the-art lighting and home automation technology were used. Existing details of this pre-war apartment were restored and combined with contemporary details where new work was added. The owner's appreciation of hand-made materials is evident in the choice of tiles and architectural hardware.
Upper East Side Townhouse
Part of the work was to create a beautiful boudoir including a bathroom tiled with Thassos and a custom, hand-made marble mosaic floor.
The work on the street façade consisted of the removal of existing paint and restoration of the original brownstone as well as replacement of existing deteriorated ironwork.
Gramercy Park Apartment
Work included kitchen and bedroom renovation.
West Village Townhouse
The scope of work included a whole-house air conditioning with a challenge no to disturb historical interior of this Federal style home. We also renovated two bathrooms and are currently working on the restoration of the street facade and bluestone sidewalk.
The existing configuration consisted of a narrow twelve-foot-long entry hall that doubled as a kitchen. The owners asked me to create a new separate working kitchen. The existing entry hall/kitchen was converted to a proper entry hall with a bench and coat hooks. The end of the hall closer to the kitchen gained a pantry storage cabinet with a freezer and a wine cooler.
