A balance between restoration and intervention ... that's how Martin Young Design describe their work on this 1907 San Francisco house. The past is acknowledged and lovingly restored but contemporary finishes and furnishings add a fresh, new layer. A modern way of living with history.
The soaring ceiling in this two bedroom duplex in a converted 19th century schoolhouse in Cobble Hill, New York lifts this otherwise small space to another level. Natasi Vail Design has exploited the height during their renovation of the space with clever built ins to maximise storage and provide architectural detail. Splashes of blue and pink play against white walls while a gallery hang of small art pieces accentuates the height. The original kitchen has a low ceiling height but by removing upper cabinets and replacing them with open shelves the space appears more open. An awkward apartment soars to new heights
