Built in 1924 and designed by Emery Roth, this one-bedroom, 825sf coop on lower Fifth Avenue was brought into the 21st century. The main focus of this ground up renovation was to create a direct link between the living room and kitchen, creating a more open and airy plan. A small closet was removed to connect the two spaces while also allowing room for a round, extendable dining table. Pendant fixture is by Roll and Hill.

Everything was demolished to make way for a more modern, loft-like style. Even the original floors (too badly damaged to save) were replaced with solid oak, random-plank pre-finished flooring from LV Wood. The bathroom (enlarged by annexing the adjacent hall) now has a custom wall-mounted vanity in rift-cut oak, standing shower sheathed in stone, a heated marble floor, fittings by Kallista from Ann Sacks, and mirror ball pendant by Tom Dixon.
