“We were commissioned to design 11 model apartments for a Lower East Side residential building, One Manhattan Square. Each apartment tells the story of the unique characters who might someday inhabit the space. The apartments were transformed from white walled units into richly layered homes that are inviting to a range of potential residents.”
New York designer Anna Karlin transformed once white boxes into richly layered homes. Here are two of the apartments. The first a colourful and richly patterned home full of contrasts and collected objects. The second a welcoming space for friends and family to gather with soft textures and warm hues.
