This Lafayette Street, New York Apartment is no nice. It definitely has a great modern aesthetic with not being to minimal or cold. It has the smell of Mid century modern mixed with some Dutch. For some reason I would have loved to see the cabinet doors done it white, that’s just me though. More after the jump.
A 2,500 square foot space with East and South exposures overlooking large maple trees, inspired the use of natural and warm materials. The floors were laid with wide board douglas fir lightly oiled to allow for aging and patina. To maximize the presence of the trees in the room, single light tilt-turn windows were installed. Below each window, heating and cooling units are concealed behind perforated gray metal covers. A full height volume, containing bathrooms and laundry situated at a northern light well, is layered with storage units on two sides. The owners furniture collection is complemented by custom made cabinets and bookshelves. An exposed wood column and beam become an important spatial divider in a room where both eating and living take place. photos by Sean Hemmerle + Christoph Kircherer
