GRT Architects transformed an apartment in the historic Onyx Court building in New York’s East Village, redefining its layout while respecting its original character. The kitchen underwent a stunning redesign, relocating diagonally for improved flow and functionality. A semi-open layout was achieved with clever elements like brass-legged cabinets and suspended storage, dividing it from the dining area. A playful mix of textures and colours enhances the kitchen’s appeal while a sculptural island houses electric appliances. The principal suite replaced the former kitchen, emphasizing privacy and elegance. The project included modern upgrades, from windows to air conditioning, seamlessly integrated by the architects.
