Space in this prewar two bedroom was converted to create a formal dining room, which the existing floorplan was lacking. The space is unique due to a non-orthogonal layout. The dining room was created by strategically reducing the size of the adjacent common areas. Etched glass panels bordering the kitchen and living room and two slender columns on the opposite wall frame the room and define the space. The awkward jog in the middle of the wall, bordering the neighboring apartment, was transformed into a focal point by creating a lightened niche. A modern pendant light, centered over the table further articulates the space. The finished space has a modern deco feel consistent with the aesthetic of the prewar building.
