Our clients wanted a home with an open flow that would make the three-bedroom apartment feel as spacious as possible. We maintained long sightlines from one end of the apartment to the other, drawing natural light across the home. We sheathed the central core in custom oak panels that have a pronged batten relief inspired by the branches of the trees in the building’s courtyard. The light casts shadows across the branches and gives depth to the surface.
