ONE VANDAM CONDOMINIUM
Project: One Vandam Condominium Location: Soho, NYC Status: Completed
Building Architect: BKSK. Developed by Quinlan Development Group and Tavros.
Description: Interiors, lobby and common spaces. In our first large scale development project, we created a cohesive vision for the interiors of the building. Our design enhances the airiness of the spaces within, fused with the industrial past of the neighborhood. In the apartments, the custom kitchens, each with floor to ceiling windows, are comprised of bleached walnut cabinetry which maintains the natural character of the wood while creating a clean and modern feel. The finishes in the bathrooms are soft but detailed, with dual glazed tiles by Heath Ceramics and custom oxidized maple vanities. The plumbing by Watermark is custom designed by Studio DB for this project, inspired by a punk metal stud, but refined in an elegant manner and finished in polished nickel. The powder room takes a richer tone, with bold tiles from Waterworks, a custom marble slab sink, and leather Jacques Adnet mirrors. The wood flooring used throughout has a custom stain developed with The Hudson Company, a local wood purveyor. The lobby design responds to the L shaped configuration, creating a grid on the ceiling of metal fins that both leads your eye back to the green courtyard beyond and defines the seating area within. The balance between the concrete floors, the soft textures of linen wallpaper, the natural character of walnut cabinetry create warm and rich common spaces.
Description: We converted an Airstream trailer in the sales gallery for a luxury condominium project at 211 Elizabeth Street. The interior was infused with elements that displayed the characteristics of the project, including blackened steel clad cabinets, walnut cabinetry and custom upholstery. We built out the gallery space around the Airstream with images of the project, with a custom steel gate to the street with pipe and bronze handle.
SMYTH UPSTAIRS STAGING
Project: Smyth Upstairs Staging for Stribling Location: Tribeca, NYC Size: 1,550 square feet Status: Completed fall 2010
Description: This project was a furnishing, decorating and styling job of an apartment above the posh Smyth Hotel. With expansive windows and an open plan, we sought to create a series of comfortable spaces and individualized vignettes. A great photograph by Jeff Barnett-Winsby anchors the living room, setting the tone for the colors of the space. The kitchen is softened by lights from Niche Modern and a series of small and personal pieces of artwork. A custom light fixture in the dining room fills the room and creates a dynamic element within a rectilinear room.
