THE PROJECT: REDESIGNING AND RENOVATING AN APARTMENT TO FIT A FAMILY’S GROWING NEEDS
This growing family wanted to add more living space as well as a separate nanny suite to their classic six, Upper West Side apartment.
DESIGNING A SOLUTION
By redesigning the kitchen area, TNB was able to create an open floorplan that better served the family’s needs. A gut renovation included adding a master bathroom, HVAC, refinishing and repairing flooring, recreating moldings and patching up damaged areas as well as updated bathrooms and new electrical and lighting throughout. All of these changes were created to fit with the traditional aesthetic of this building with a modern twist.
By turning the former kitchen into a combined living-dining-parlor area, TNB created an ideal space for the family to relax and entertain guests. With the space freed up by the new design, we created a home office and bedroom with an ensuite bathroom. TNB also managed the installation of central air conditioning units, which is no small task in this landmarked district in New York City.
