Our goal for this upper east side apartment was to transform a space originally divided in several rooms into an open floor plan, a reminder of a loft space overlooking Central Park. Our client, who would use the apartment as their pied-a-terre in NY, asked us to keep it as open as possible. We achieved this by keeping the windowed wall along Fifth Avenue uninterrupted and by using see-through built-in units and floor to ceiling sliding panels. The result was a continuous and light filled living, dining and kitchen space. By also keeping compact, yet comfortable bedrooms and bathrooms, and dedicating openness and spaciousness to the common areas, we were able to achieve a visually uninterrupted space. One of the challenges of the project was to accommodate a study/office space for our client. Photographs by Beatrice Pediconi
