Formerly a hotel built in the early 1900, this Upper West Side studio has been completely transformed into a bright and stylish contemporary home full of space-saving design tricks where a couple can comfortably cook and entertain. Drawing inspiration from the Parisian Beaux-arts style of the building, the team at NYC Design Studio Duro Deco added various arched frames and curves to create a sense of height and space, softening the edges and enhancing the flow of the home. Moving the kitchen into the living space created one large open living area. The clever addition of a custom made ‘Murphy Table’ to fit in a 4 seater dining area folds neatly up onto the wall and appears like an artwork when not in use. The materials used in the kitchen have been thoughtfully selected to reflect light from the large window across the room, whilst a frosted glass bathroom door allows light from the bathroom window to filter through to the rest of the apartment.
