The client purchased a small but light filled one bedroom with great views of the water in a new building in Soho. A long narrow hallway upon entering the unit coupled with the division of rooms made the apartment feel much smaller and blocked the view as well as light from flowing throughout the space. The solution was to remove all of the walls, only adding back glass partitions where they were essential for privacy. The resulting apartment has a spacious, light filled loft-like feel. The removal of walls in the bedroom area made for an interesting open bathroom. The entire bathroom is clad in white stone giving it a sculptural appearance, the color of which allows it to blend seamlessly with the adjacent bedroom walls. The walk-in closet/dressing areas houses the toilet and is enclosed by glass partitions allowing for privacy. A floating desk was built from white lacquer in front of the bedroom window giving a workspace without effecting the light or the view. The new open kitchen features gray oak lower and white glass upper cabinets coupled with white stone counter tops and an eat-in island that opens into the dining area. New gray varying width wide plank french oak floors were installed throughout the apartment. All of the new materials and furniture in the apartment were done in varying shades of white, gray, and blue to capture and reflect the light, mirroring the feel of the water outside the windows.
