The tiny New York City apartment emphasizes that bigger isn't always better. The design portrays a calm essence, and the apartment is a safe haven from the city. Focusing on the apartment's history and the modern-day, the design scheme is a variation of an earlier project, in which the bed-chamber is an independent volume floating within an open space. The kitchen has oak cabinets that match the floorboards. The bathroom features a custom vanity and marble floors. The result is an apartment with subtle architectural details that offer a variety of experiences.
