RRA's goal was to accommodate the clients' lifestyle
while maintaining the classic seven layout of this pre-war Upper West Side apartment. The renovation included a large master bedroom (combining two bedrooms), new fixtures and finishes in all three bathrooms and enlarged kitchen. All moldings and column capitals including the dining area wall paneling were stripped and the oak & plaster detailing was restored. The kitchen was reconfigured which allowed for a fully functioning space and open eating area with a 3’ by 7’ marble slab island. The new layout provides the formal yet casual feeling the client desired while maintaining an elegance worthy of its grand south views of the neo-romanesque building of the Natural History Museum.
