320 Central Park West

Client: Ms. Cara Schnaper
New York City, NY | 2013

The gut renovation was for a client who had recently moved back to the city from her suburban New Jersey home. This restart marked a new time in her life to entertain guests and enjoy the urban experience anew. After entering this immaculate Art Deco Central Park West building, one is greeted with a screen of glass and an imprint in the floor of the paw prints of her faithful mascot and a framed Buddhist Mandala. These pairs of divergent symbols reflect the client's sensibility and like an overture set the stage for the unsuing drama to unfold. From here we marked the beginning of the path: either right to her bedroom or her bedroom suite, or left to her entertainment areas. We chose materials rich in texture, but not overbearing. Her possessions tastefully worked with the rooms architecture and ultimately the space became a reflection of who she is and where she wants to be at this inflection point in her life.
