This luxury Penthouse offers sweeping views of Central Park that create a tranquil escape the busy city of New York. Creating a relaxed yet upscale environment that does not compete with the views, but instead enhances them was an important part of the design development. Twelve different tradesmen were managed in order to create this space. In the kitchen a neutral color pallet was selected which highlights the wood floor, the stainless steel appliances and the book-matched marble countertop and backsplash.
74th St & Madison
Upper West Side, New York
Greenwich Village, New York
Greenwich Village (2), New York
The renovation on this Greenwich Village apartment created an interesting opportunity to combine two existing apartments and the hallway connecting them into one open space. With the additional space it was important to create a logical layout for the privacy of the parents and the children, while maintaining an open plan. Connecting the two apartments naturally created two wings with the living, dining and kitchen areas in the center of the space and the bedrooms flanking the public areas. The pallet for this design remained consistent throughout the space, mainly navy blue and white to create contrast with pops of bright colors to make the space more lively.
10th St & Broadway
Crane Residence, New York
Greenwich Village, Manhattan
The Crane Residence is an excellent example of the style of work that 2NYAD produces.The design unifies modern materials and the existing structure of the space. In order to achieve this, the ceiling beams and the brick walls were exposed and combined with reclaimed wood to maintain the traditional feel of a Manhattan loft, while maple cabinetry, lacquer cabinetry and corian countertops were used to create a contemporary feel. Storage and utility space were both an issue in this apartment.The resolution was to incorporate drawers into the staircase as well as a built-in refrigerator, washer and dryer.
600 S/F 10th St and Broadway
Soho Loft, New York
Williams Residence, New York
Flatiron District, Manhattan
The challenge of the Williams Residence was to open the kitchen up to the rest of the living area. The original 80's layout of the space had a small kitchen in a separate room from the rest of the living area. In order to merge the two rooms into one, the walls of the kitchen had to be removed and the area of the kitchen was extended into the living room. The kitchen island is ultimately the unifying object of the two spaces. A connection can also be seen between the materials of the island and the materials of the built in millwork in the living room. A material combination was used to express a modern rustic style with indirect light to soften the space. The bathroom continues the modern rustic style by using neutral colors and reclaimed wood.
30th St & Lexington
Ho Residence, New York
The Ho residence has a modern rustic style with a Japanese influence. The exposed brick, white ceiling and columns and wide floor planks contribute to the modern rustic style while shoji screens and minimalistic shelving show the Japanese influence. The kitchen appliances are paneled, adding clean lines and a more minimalistic aesthetic to the space. The existing ceiling offered an opportunity for an interesting design using soffits. The design of the ceiling continues with the layout of the track lighting and the sprinkler system, while the lights add a sparkle that catch the eye. A minimalist approach was taken in the bathroom in order to express the texture of the materials; the frosted glass and the striated tile stand out as a result.
