West Chelsea Apartment, New York, NY

Our goal in this interior design and architectural project was to juxtapose a significant contemporary art collection with a riff on a traditional interior, one more typical of Park Avenue than Chelsea. The apartment sits above newly-built and active commercial space and intentionally remains distinct from it in personality and tone. All the rooms, as well as the exterior spaces, were conceived as locations for ever-changing art installations.

Originally completed in 2007, we redesigned the interiors in 2016.

3,340 square feet including professional and family space
