Built in 1924, this apartment on lower Fifth Avenue was brought into the 21st century. The main focus of this ground up renovation was to create a direct link from the living room to the kitchen, creating a more open and airy plan. A closet was removed to connect the living room and kitchen while also allowing room for a large, extendable dining table.

Everything was demolished to make way for a more modern, loft-like style. Even the floors were replaced with solid oak, random-plank floors from LV Wood. The bath now has a standing shower sheathed in stone, a heated marble floor, fittings by Kallista from Ann Sacks, and Mirror Ball pendant by Tom Dixon.
