Suffolk Residence

Location: Manhattan, New York
Gross floor area: 851 sft
Completion: May 2016

The new concept for the main spaces required the living room, kitchen, and bedroom rearranged to in­troduce an intuitive flow through the 900 ft apartment in New York’s Lower East Side.

The open layout is now anchored around two main architectural elements, a shelving unit partition and the stainless steel kitchen island. The shelving unit is placed at an angle to further open up the space and cre­ate dynamic paths through the apartment. Combined with the sliding pivot doors on both ends, it also protects the intimacy of the bedroom while allowing for various spatial and visual configurations. The island extends the kitchen with an enlarged preparation area that interactively links dining and living zones, as a focal point of gathering and entertainment.
