Katherina Kolb. Modern Interior Design. August 29th , 2017.
A 900m2 (9,688ft2) exhibition room is organised in different zones that display the wide range of materials and complements of the brand. A 170m2 (1,830ft2) area is set aside for reproducing a dwelling using these materials: the Premium House
The horizontal joints of the aluminum panels break up the vertical surface as a reference to the rhythm of the window spacing of the row houses. At the same time, the glass and aluminum reference the many high-rise apartment and office buildings of this midtown Manhattan neighborhood.
Gut rennovation and 2 story addition on 1890’s row house in Brooklyn’s Red Hook neighborhood. The design of this townhouse sets out to utilize natural, reclaimed, and common materials in a contemporary fashion. Renovation completed on an extremely tight budget with a very hands on approach to testing fabrication methods while the house was under construction. Completed in May 2014
This five-floor residence is constructed within the fixed footprint of an existing three-story townhouse on a typically narrow infill Manhattan plot, sharing party walls with the adjacent houses. The clients asked for loft-like spaces, open and filled with light but also private – exactly the opposite of a standard NYC row house, with its street-side windows usually curtained or shuttered from the eyes of passers-by.
At entrance, you will see a mirror cube on the right, this is a constrained decoy – on the client’s request a part of the room was allocated for a spacious full-scale walk-in closet. For this voluminous element not to conceal space, it was decorated with mirrors, which allows to visually retain the room dimensions, add light from the reflected window, and is pragmatic: a mirror is a must-be in a room with a walk-in closet.
