This renovation strives to respect the classic features of prewar New York architecture, while updating them to meet contemporary needs. The entry foyer was reorganized to become a central node connecting the dining room, living room, and bedroom areas with a series of large walnut open door frames. The main public spaces were redesigned to create a large and open kitchen adjacent to the dining room from which one can glance to the living room through a small bookcase slot. Open, staggered book shelves accommodate the owners vast library, a formal theme which is repeated in the master bedroom.
All bathrooms were redone and a new powder room was created between the study and kitchen. With a new central air system, wood floor, and energy efficient lighting this apartment will be a comfortable family home for the 21st century.
