This chic modern apartment in Central Park West (one of my favourite parts of NYC) designed by Stonefox Architects.
Located in a 1930’s tower facing Central Park West, this apartment was completely renovated to open up views to the park and meet the needs of the clients. Originally a two bedroom apartment, the second bedroom was opened up to function as a Library/ Den, but can still be closed off for the occasional guest. The clients enjoy entertaining and wanted the home to have flexibility for a casual cocktail party, or a more formal sit down dinner. There is a large high polished mahogany sliding wall which separates the Kitchen and Dining Room. For a casual breakfast, the wall can be open to connect the two spaces, but for formal dinner, the wall can be closed to conceal the work in the Kitchen. A chic bar was created out of space which was formally a Butler’s Pantry—making it more conducive to entertaining. Bathrooms were renovated, and where possible, expanded to enlarge a shower and create his/ his sinks. The interior, which is a blend of traditional, midcentury, and contemporary furniture and details, reflects the client’s design sensibility.
