  • A unified cabinetry system takes front stage in this deconversion of two apartments into one cohesive living space.

    The cabinetry features a wrap detail that frames each installation. In the kitchen, the wrap joins the various sizes, heights and planes of the cabinet doors into a unified whole before cascading down to wrap the dining room buffet. Similarly, the wrap organizes the master bath into alcoves.

    The living room features a cantilevered cabinet which allows the floor, ceiling and light to flow uninterrupted to the gallery beyond. One side conceals a media center, the other displays art behind glass doors.

    The kitchen and dining room are illuminated by a 28’ custom extrusion that provides direct down lighting over the island, spotlights in the dining room and provisions for a future pendant over the dining table. Asymmetric fluorescent fixtures are concealed above the cabinetry to provide indirect lighting throughout the apartment.
