Preserving history in a 1908 building in the Upper West Side

Posted on Mon, 29 Apr 2024 by KiM

Inside an iconic landmark building built in 1908 in the Upper West Side, the home is combined by two adjacent apartments.  The goals were to reconfigure a thoughtful flow tracing the footprint of the new owner while carrying out the inherited architectural details seamlessly. The original architectural detail was carefully preserved and set the tone of the dwelling while connecting the design to the beaux arts roots of the building. Steeped in the rich history of New York, our focus was a transformative journey to reshape the historic home with a new narrative.
I am DYING over all of that original wood detail. I would have been inclined to have gone darker in the rest of the spaces so the white isn’t so contrasting but I appreciate the bold approach. Design: Bespoke Only; Photos: William Jess Laird.
