6 Manhattan Apartment Renovations
Tribeca Loft Renovation
This first apartment is a Tribeca Loft that is currently for sale at 7.65 million. This loft is all white and very minimalist. Located in Tribeca, it is a great example of a New York City loft in a former manufacturing building. It has spectacular high ceilings in the living room and a mezzanine level.
This loft is roughly 4,000 square feet and has a large white kitchen.
The picture below is of the bathroom which has a large sculptural freestanding tub.
Financial District Concrete Apartment
This next apartment was originally all white, but an all white apartment is not for everyone. The owner wanted to add texture and mood to the space. The apartment was completely transformed into a concrete industrial and textural home.
Chelsea Loft Apartment
This is a loft in Chelsea where we added a second bathroom and renovated the original one. This bathroom is all porcelain with modern fixtures.
This apartment has some very unique décor. The have eclectic furniture, paintings, sculptures, and a giant chipmunk. Your apartment is yours to do with what you wish.
Chelsea Loft Home Office
This is a picture in a loft where we added a new home office with these black metal and glass doors. The office has a bright red accent wall that really stands out in an all white loft apartment.
Upper West Side Apartment Renovation
This next apartment is on the Upper West Side. It had a very tight kitchen that was fully enclosed. We opened it partially and made a pass through kitchen window.
Manhattan Prewar Apartment Renovation
This one is a prewar Manhattan apartment which we renovated.
This is a white-on-white kitchen with gold faucet. A lot of people like white kitchens, but you can bring a little extra vibrancy into it with some kind of accent.
Manhattan Apartment Renovations
As an architect, I study design and construction, but these are complicated and quite involved issues. Every project is different and must be assessed on its own unique characteristics. This post does not assume to cover every possible issue or condition, but provide a general overview of the topic.
