east village apartment
New York, NY 2018
Renovation and décor of a historic East Village apartment. The main aim was to uplift and counterpoint the existing 19th century interiors, including working brick fireplace, wooden window frames, black-and-white bath tiles and stone hallway floor, with contemporary glossy reflective surfaces such as stainless steel side tables with glass-blown lamps and large mirror.
White or light-colored natural textiles freshen the interiors of the apartment, which is made brighter by lifting the hallway ceiling a few feet, to amplify the passage of light between both south and north-facing windows.
