In our renovation of this Central Park penthouse, we stripped back the walls, floors and ceiling to the building’s concrete base, then carefully designed infrastructure to allow for ten-foot ceilings in all the public spaces. We paired the classical architectural detailing with a modern open plan to create an elegant, contemporary home in which the living room and master bedroom open to a terrace that overlooks the park.
The palette for both the architectural finishes and furnishings is soft and tonal. Black and white limestone floors in the entry, dining room and kitchen transition to grey stained oak floors in the rest of the penthouse. The custom-built millwork is eucalyptus in the kitchen, and silver-grey curly maple in the living room and dining area. An etched mirror surrounds the windows facing Central Park, reflecting the view. To complete the modern and timeless aesthetic sought by our client, we worked with interior designer Larysa Sendich of Nesta Studio for furniture, fabrics, wall coverings and curtains.
