This project involved the full renovation of a 2,500 square foot Gramercy Park apartment within one of the oldest apartment buildings in New York City. The interior had been architecturally disconnected from its roots over the years by a number of ill-conceived renovations. This design sought to return the apartment to its Aesthetic Movement and English Arts and Crafts origins, while meeting the modern needs of its current owners. Carefully selected materials, such as the dining room furniture by Godwin, rich detailing and the re-use of certain original elements create a space that is distinctly modern-traditional.
