Katherina Kolb. Modern Interior Design. August 29th , 2017.
The fourth and fifth floor are designed to act as a quiet refuge from the chaotic workload and frequent overseas travel, as well as to provide and elegant space for the entertaining and private realm of a young family.
This stylish and bright apartment belongs to a young girl with her daughter. The hostess asked the studio ALLARSTDESIGN after received the keys and it’s the issue of repair. Customer once insisted on the interior – in which everything must be red, slowly and surely, we exclude too much of this color. We added a lot of light metal and textured coatings.
Movements, spaces and volumes occur to fulfill various functional requirements through the architectural manipulation of materials, details and finishes. Two equal halves performing public and private functions are employed throughout horizontally and vertically.
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.
Among residential projects, color is probably one of the essential elements and it also has good cost performance. Our client is a teacher who has positive attitude and energetic. She would like her home to be joyful and bright. We applied macaron color scheme to this lady’s house. Mild color showing on furniture gives the space fresh and positive atmosphere.
