A renovated Park Avenue prewar apartment

Posted on Tue, 2 Jun 2020 by KiM

I absolutely love this Park Avenue prewar apartment architected and designed by MKCA. It has a contemporary art deco feel to it and has some exuberant touches that keep it young and fresh. Located in a distinguished Carnegie Hill co-op building, the 2,800 sf apartment has been reimagined for contemporary family life while retaining its original gracious formality. The renovation concentrated on maximizing the already well-proportioned formal spaces, including a generous entrance gallery, formal living room and dining room; while converting the dark and crowded storage and service areas into functional contemporary living elements.

Lake House Völs

The landscape of Italy’s South Tyrol province is spectacular. From the soaring peaks of the Dolomites to  its dense pine forests and mirror like alpine lakes the region is a haven for those who love the outdoors, summer or winter. Lake House Völs by noa* network of architecture has merged a modern design concept with well-loved tradition to deliver architecture that works in harmony with nature. The larch clad bathing and ice skating pavilion sits quietly in the stunning surrounds providing amenity and simple beauty.
