This project is a 2 bedroom apartment in a Landmarked building in the Upper East Side. The Vanderbilts originally funded the building in 1909 to serve as a model tenement and sanatorium for tuberculosis patients and their families. Like most sanatoriums, the design emphasized light and ventilation, utilizing full height, triple hung windows throughout in combination with airy, central courtyards. Once the sanitorium was no longer viable economically, the building naturally lent itself to apartments.

This project combines two adjacent 1 bedroom units into an efficient and flexible 2BR + Office for a growing family. Over time, the apartments had become increasingly fragmented and compartmentalized; it was our principal design objective to open the space back up - aligning the primary living spaces along a row of historic, triple hung windows with views to the east river. The kitchen, living and dining areas are aligned parallel to these windows, creating an airy, open plan that exploits the building’s original use.
