Renovated SoHo Duplex

By

Combining style and function can be a difficult endeavor when it comes to designing space-constrained New York apartments, and our client for this project tasked us with this exact challenge. A financier who works from home, he was seeking to convert a dark, outdated duplex into a space that would serve as a living area, office, and place for entertaining. It also had to be comfortable enough for his girlfriend and durable enough to accommodate his 7-year-old bulldog.

An area rug from Tom Dixon’s collection for The Rug Company adds a sophisticated, urban edge to the design. The staircase, which is prominently positioned in the center of the living area, featured iron railings, so we created continuity by refinishing the fireplace in iron and cement.

Modern home with Dining Room, Chair, Accent Lighting, Bar, Ceiling Lighting, Light Hardwood Floor, and Table. We designed a custom walnut bar that is intended for storage, but also serves as a buffet and bar when they have guests over. They like to set it up so guests can help themselves, so we designed it to include two refrigerators: one for wine, and the second for water, soda, and other beverages.

Modern home with Bedroom, Bed, Night Stands, and Wall Lighting. The couple wanted to give the space a modern, loft-like feeling. So, we added an internal window in the upstairs bedroom that overlooks the downstairs space, which lets in sunlight that floods through the double-height window in the living area. Still, they wanted to retain a moody vibe, so we used a grey textured wall covering throughout. Photo 8 of Renovated SoHo DuplexView Photos
