An apartment by General Assembly

Posted on Fri, 6 Feb 2015 by KiM

I absolutely adore this Brooklyn apartment, designed by Sarah Lawlor Zames of General Assembly. After trying and failing to find an apartment with character, the owners of this space opted to combine two fairly lifeless new development apartments and renovate to perfectly suit their style. Bringing in as many natural materials as possible was important to these penthouse owners, so GA incorporated concrete wall and ceiling details, reclaimed wood floors, marble slabs in the shower and kitchen, and plenty of custom Walnut millwork. We designed steel and glass doors to divide public and private areas, and full height flush millwork doors to stretch the space upward. This is a fantastic example of how to create a modern space that is comfortable and has personality. The wood flooring is an absolute dream, and is beautiful when combined with the marble and walnut. The southwestern vibe in the living room really works and the unexpected graphic wallpapers add some whimsy. I would not change a thing. Lucky owners! (photos by Joe Fletcher)

The marble against the walnut and matte black is stunning.

This bar unit is genius, subtly incorporating a pet feeding station.

WHOA – the desk area houses a spare bed for guests. !!!!

Perhaps I am distracted by the adorable puppy, but this wallpaper would typically have me horrified…and somehow I kind of love it.

I saw this space in the NY TImes a while back, and it's definitely a showstopper–a master class in bringing heart and soul to a cookie-cutter developer high-rise. I also love the nod to that haute Brooklyn staple "reclaimed" wood, and the used of Navajo rugs for graphic punch.

Amazing work! Its is not my style and still I love it! Floors, windows, kitchen – everything so nice coming together and for sure not one of those seen before homes.
