39 UNION SQUARE
This unusual interior renovation is located 2 blocks south of Union Square. The building, originally designed as a warehouse in 1893 by the New York firm of Cleverdon & Putzel, was converted to residential use in 1978. The conversion produced quirky spaces and impractical room arrangements — lofting interior volumes adjacent to small, awkward, isolated spaces. For this reason we sought to transform this odd apartment with a great space into a unified, functional home with great space throughout. This project included a newly relocated kitchen, bedroom, and den, 3 newly expanded bathrooms, and a three storey custom stair.
Co - play of the opposites
Blending together soft wood elements and strong brick walls that complement each other with their warm colors responds to the romantic image of a newyorker being confident and warm at the same time.
The wooden shapes creates a charismatic play of shadow and light that gives its inhabitants an opportunity to enjoy the play of sun that makes an artistic entertainment source on its own.
