    Completed 2011

    The renovation project for an apartment in downtown Manhattan began with the client’s desire to transform the segregated living room, dining room and kitchen into a single contemporary living space and to reconfigure a complexity of closets and a small bathroom into a spacious master suite. The design solution was to remove the walls of the original enclosed kitchen and extend the countertop to allow space for upgraded appliances and ample cabinets for storage. A kitchen island differentiates the cooking area from the living and dining while maintaining one continuous space. Reworking the walls in the entry foyer provided significant space to expand the kitchen yet retained an essential separation for the entry.
