New York, NY
This narrow, two floor, one bedroom, apartment is located in the iconic Printing House building at 421 Hudson Street. The unique floor plan was embraced and exaggerated to create moments of intimacy and discovery. Venetian plaster is used as a ceiling surface treatment to add reflective depth to the low-height dining room. A waxed gradient wall finish was used in the double-height living room to increase the feeling of horizontal space. The forms of eight custom designed furniture pieces create subdivisions of social spaces within the apartment. These pieces reinterpret conventional form and technique through an unexpected mix of form and material including brass, walnut, grey-stained ash, ceramic tile, wool, and lacquer.
