A New York State of Mind

Manhattan Condominium

Sometimes an opportunity comes along that you just cannot resist. Such was the case with this New York City condominium. The realtor putting it up for sale was concerned that the chopped up, closed spaces of the existing layout could make a sale difficult, so we were engaged to create a “what if” design. Changing the entire layout to open up to the existing two story space, we were able to show how to introduce abundant natural light into the interior of the deep, narrow apartment. We were also able to demonstrate how removal of interior non-load-bearing walls could lead to a more open and functional living area and kitchen. Although we’re weren’t able to see our final design realized, we’re told it did aid in the eventual successful sale of the property.
