Located in an elegant Rosario Candela co-op on the Upper West Side, the owners purchased two apartments and worked with 2Michaels to design a large, modern space with an upstairs and a downstairs. A custom staircase was built using cable wire and wood for easy navigation between the two floors. Influenced by a love of Japanese design the materials chosen were reflective of their shared sensibilities. Cherry wood was selected for the custom cabinetry in the kitchen, dining room, and living room, Pietra Cardosa, a blue/gray stone, was used on the countertops. Sliding doors made of blackened steel opened to a study and master bedroom suite. A bespoke glass screen was designed to separate the kitchen from the dining room. Furniture from the 1930’s - 1950’s were carefully chosen to reflect the spare, warm interiors.
