After spending many months looking for a new apartment in Manhattan, our clients decided it would make more sense for them to renovate their existing Two-Bedroom pied-a-terre. The existing galley kitchen was an interesting problem to solve, short on storage and functional working surfaces, we also had a plumbing line, boxed out in the middle of the countertop adding to the list of issues to resolve.
By relocating the Refrigerator and creating a full-height pullout pantry alongside the plumbing line, we were able to conceal it within the pantry unit. Taking space from an underutilized closet next to the existing kitchen, we extended the kitchen creating more storage and counter space.
Adding lighting and soffits to the Living Room and entrance hall, we created faux beams to bring proportion and recessed lighting without reducing ceiling height throughout. The custom millwork along the Dining and Living room window wall was designed to create storage at the windowsill and conceal the heating and AC units. Similar cabinetry was installed in each bedroom. New custom wide plank flooring was installed throughout the main living areas of the apartment, with new wool carpet installed in both bedrooms and hallway.
In the Primary Bathroom, we removed the Tub and installed a walk-in Shower and both bathrooms received new finishes and fixtures. In each room, we created soffits to either frame existing beams or match them, which created a more unified ceiling and allowed us to add lighting.
