New York City, NY | 2001

[1,400 SF]
The apartment features modernist high-end interior and exterior finishes, private outdoor space, a duplex loft apartment, two bedrooms and two bathrooms. A combination of two existing top floor studios with a new level added, this apartment utilized various materials found in New York City, such as subway train doors and other Manhattan-centric ephemera. Incorporated within this framework are the traditional four basic elements: fire, earth, water, and air. Water, for example, is represented by a vertical shower stall surrounded by glass in the master suite, giving the apartment an aquatic core. This project continues to garner critical acclaim; international press and local media alike.
