New York, NY
The project consisted of a complete renovation to an existing 650sf apartment located on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. While limited in square footage as is common to New York apartments, unique to this unit is an extensive exterior perimeter wall with numerous windows that bring southern light into the space throughout the day. In order to maximize this quality, all interior walls were removed and replaced with interior sliding ‘Panelite’ honeycomb panels which provide privacy between the long hallway and adjacent bathroom and bedroom spaces while allowing natural light to filter through. Even the back splash of the kitchen/bathroom is translucent, heightening the sense of balance required between privacy and light within the apartment.
