Upper West Side 4

 

A grand prewar apartment building provided the context for the reconnection of three small units into their original layout as a single apartment, slightly modified to accommodate a more contemporary lifestyle. Existing wall paneling in the living room served as a model for additional millwork, and the dining room’s plaster ceiling decoration was restored. New floor borders and molding echo original detailing. Moroccan tile on the kitchen backsplash and master bathroom floor provides a jolt of modern color.
