Minimalist interiors are very appealing. They impress not with their flashy and bold details with the beauty of their simplicity. This New York apartment is a wonderful example for that. This apartment is located on the Upper West Side in Manhattan, New York City, USA. Originally, it had an internal structure that wasn’t exactly what its owners wanted so it had to be reconfigured. This was the job of StudioLab that also created this beautiful interior design.
This is a prewar apartment that originally featured two units that were then reconfigured into a large three bedroom structure. This also meant that the initially dark areas had the potential of becoming bright and light-filled. The result was a non-traditional layout. The bedrooms were moved to the west wall and the living room and kitchen were moved to the south where they could benefit from more natural light coming from the large window.
Overall, the apartment features wide-plank grey-washed walnut flooring that further contributes to the airy and bright atmosphere. After the renovation and reconfiguration, the apartment also got a concrete cube representing the office. This area is enclosed by two large sliding Starphire acid-etched glass doors for more privacy. There are many storage units throughout the apartment and LED Cove lighting used in the main living areas. The master suite is spacious and features a walk-in closet and a large bathroom with under-floor heating and a custom steam shower. Overall, this is a very smart apartment with a minimalist and elegant interior.
