Today’s homify account heroes the Paul Rudolph Landmark Estate, one of the masterpieces from the house of NY based interior architects JOE GINSBERG. A historic building remodeling project, the Paul Rudolph Estate was renovated employing contemporary material applications; the interior spaces were refreshed while sticking to Rudolph’s initial design specifications.

Entrusting the interior architect team with the task of upgrading the estate to current material applications within the confines of the interior’s aesthetic, the client was keen on a modern living space while retaining the neat minimalism of the original design. 

The expert professionals not only revived this unique residence but also kept a piece of history alive, complementing & maintaining the original design intent. Sounds interesting? Let’s explore!

Delectable magnificence.

The bright dining space dazzles in opulent elegance with the poised dining set- glass top dining table with a white base & blue chairs that add a chic dash of color into the white preponderance. The adjacent small hollow staircase with white steps leads to more intimate spaces upstairs; notice the small lounging area & the kitchen on either sides of the dining space.

The cozy living room space downstairs with the black upholstered couch & built-in wall bookshelf can also be seen flanking the narrow corridor.

This image allows you to appreciate the clear elegance imparted to different parts of this dwelling by the usage of glass. And white… … white needs no endorsement, now does it?

Restful luxury.

In this modern bathroom, the white, sunken, squarish bathtub hogs the limelight. The modern look has been stylishly tapped into, using stark angles. Glass & stainless steel prove to be poised complements. Note that washbasin on the backside.
