an elevated calm project
Steel and Glass
New York City
Sometimes a design solution comes within the first few seconds of seeing a project. You entered the original apartment into a dark hallway, totally out of character for this sun-filled apartment, high up in a neo-gothic high-rise. Bringing daylight into the foyer became the starting point and a view to the city, an added benefit.
The office and library would also act as a guest bedroom. We envisioned a prominent steel and glass door, that would frame your view. A heavy, theatrical-like drape would offer privacy when needed.
With true divided lites of steel and glass, a pocket door of this weight needs to be carefully crafted- a hidden locking mechanism, appropriate hardware and cushioning gives the door a solid, smooth experience.
We punctuated the view with a bold color scheme to the library and the sinuous lines of the fabulous Fabricius & Kastholm Grasshopper lounge chair.
