Chelsea Condo

4000sf of space in a new building on 18th Street and 7th avenue NYC for a collector and his family; became this 3 bedroom apartment with media room and home office. The Art collection was the point of departure for the work where careful lighting design for display while creating a warm living environment was the program. A furniture collection had to be accommodated as well.The interior architecture utilized long clear lines and crisp detailing while establishing discrete areas of the program to exist within the larger spaces. A drink collection for example was inspiration for the illuminated bar; a collection of artifacts motivated the display cases in the living room.
The HVAC covers doubled as storage, and the media equipment location. The bar grill motif allows speakers to be concealed without sacrificing sound quality.
