Our clients were moving from a large family home in New Jersey into a 16th floor apartment in the city. To create the clean, open aesthetic they desired, we stripped the entire apartment down to the studs and joists, and opened up the space along its East/West axis by eliminating the walls of the entry foyer. This strong architectural axis captures the sunrise in the living room and sunset in the dining room, with expansive views through the entire apartment.
The open floor plan, ample built-in storage and minimal palette deliver a crisp, clean feel, which is warmed by oak floors and custom millwork. Oak portals at the threshold of each room provide seamless transitions throughout the space. Working with Nesta Studios, we selected furniture and carpets that are modern yet comfortable so family visits from the couple’s grown children and first grandchild would be easy and relaxed.
