West Village, New York
We started by dividing the apartment into two zones, public and private, separated via a discreet pocket door. In the private zone, the bathroom has shifted to accommodate a new dressing room/walk-in closet. Meanwhile, the kitchen has moved to the entrance foyer, opening up into an expansive eat-in area that flows seamlessly into the living room.
The entrance leads to a loft-like public space with an open Bulthaup kitchen and living room. Discreet pocket doors to the bedroom, closet and bathroom offer privacy as the apartment becomes more intimate.
Once rigid and retro, the apartment is now a flexible, modern space – a personal haven that’s equally welcoming to family and friends.
