Lower Fifth Apartment
For this gut renovation of a classic pre-war apartment on Washington Square Park, architectural integrity was top of mind. We wanted to create a fresh and entirely new space that left the apartment’s historic bones intact. Walls separating the kitchen and dining room were taken down to create an open plan perfect for entertaining. We replaced the original dark floors with cerused oak herringbone to draw the eye upwards. Custom millwork in the dining room, living room and kitchen recall the apartment’s pre-war details while still feeling modern and new. An easy color palette of grays and blues, with pops of red and a spot of black here and there breathe life into this bright and airy space.
