This compact 400sf apartment located in the former home of the New York Theological Seminary, features 14ft ceilings and soaring windows.
The clients are young professionals that enjoy entertaining and have frequent overnight guests. The high ceilings permitted a sleeping loft above the kitchen while everyday sleeping is accommodated with a wall bed in the main space. The entire length of the apartment has sliding partitions allowing the kitchen, bathroom and foyer to be closed off from the main space creating a more intimate quiet area.
The apartment features extensive custom cabinetry that includes a large wall of closets with a wall-bed and a home office. A height adjustable table creates additional multi-functional surface and also expands to seat 10.
The focal point of the space is a double height wall anchored by an entertainment cabinet with a fireplace and a hidden hydraulic TV behind, the upper wall surface is used to project videos.
The bathroom has a dramatic new window and features a curb-less shower created by opening an inconspicuous glass door, which overlaps with a double sink. Oversized mirrors along one wall double the appearance of the narrow bathroom, and conceal ample storage space while custom light cylinders float in the lofted space overhead.
