While the original apartment was beautifully designed by Rosario Candela, all of it’s inherent charm had been lost.
The core concept: create a contemporary sensibility that incorporated classical elegance. A key component was opening up rooms to improve the flow and bring in more light.
While welcoming and intimate, the rooms are generous in size, allowing major works of art to be prominently featured in key locations throughout apartment.
Warm, luxurious materials used in understated ways provide a clean and neutral setting for the art to live comfortably in.
Bold, bright color, used sparingly, was infused to add drama and surprise..
While retaining the use of classical materials, the modern sensibility so evident in the main rooms runs throughout the apartment, all the way down to the details.
The outdoor terrace, with magnificent views of Central Park, was reconfigured provide an opportunity to create a more gracious approach..
Warmth, achieved through material selection and lighting, enable the more private rooms to feel tranquil and calming.
