Completion Date: March 2009

Program: A 1,417-square-foot, two-bedroom corner apartment in a coop building on Central Park West.

Design concept and solution: With the concept of modern comfort in mind, the architects stripped the apartment down to the studs and built it back up with new drywall, flooring, fixtures, and finishes. To turn the main space—which contains both the living room and the dining area—into a cozy respite from the city below, West Chin redid the fireplace wall in statuary bronze panels and added neutral curtains. The architects chose rift-cut dark-stained white oak panels for the floors (save for the master and guest bathrooms, which use statuary marble slabs and honed limestone slabs, respectively). On the other side of the living room, the dining area is defined by a floating wall that softly curves up and partway over the ceiling, like a kind of minimalist overhang. The kitchen is sleek but laid back, with Italian, gray polyester-finished cabinets and drawers, and white solid surface countertops to add polish.
