This apartment is located on the third floor of a Upper West Side walk up but with its new make-over, high ceilings and french doors leading out onto a newly built sun deck, the trip is now worth it. The apartment had two bedrooms, and a large living room, but a dark and cramped kitchen and bath. The walls and dropped ceiling needed to be opened up to take full advantage of the natural light and create an enjoyable eating/kitchen area. The client also requested a master and guest bath. We decided to create a new efficient open kitchen, and squeezed in two bathrooms and a laundry closet where the kitchen, pantry and old bathroom were located.
With the help of new compact appliances and better layout we were able to enlarge the cooking area. We took advantage of high ceilings and small floor space to create a compact yet dramatic powder room. Through the use of lighting, contemporary materials, and a sandblasted glass pocket door in the bathroom, the open and light atmosphere carries through to the entire apartment.
