Stadt Architecture has paired existing brickwork walls with walnut floors, bright white cabinets and purple furniture in the renovation of this apartment in Manhattan.
The UWS Apartment occupies the first floor of a narrow 1970s condominium conversion in New York's Upper West Side, which is split across three levels.
The kitchen and dining room are on the lowest storey, with a set of steps leading to the lounge, while the bedroom and the bathroom occupy a mezzanine floor above.
Stadt Architecture wanted to offer cohesion between these separate spaces, so inserted custom-made walnut flooring and furniture, including a narrow breakfast bar that replaces the dining table.
White cabinets interlock with the walnut wall panels and provide a brightening offset to the existing brickwork walls.
