The 56th Street apartment is a renovation project from Architects Estudio Ramos, located in Manhattan, New York. Here is the information we received from the architects, together with some striking before and after photos by Soledad Ramos:
Hardwood floors were used in the lower floor.The outdated staircase was renovated using walls, light colored wood and carpeting, setting the tone to the upper floor bedrooms. The kitchen was totally redesigned and an opening to the dining room was added, giving this space direct light, ampleness and functionality. In the TV room a closet was transformed into an office space with desk and shelving. In the entire apartment the radiators were hidden using low-built in furniture that in some cases were used as shelving. The second floor bathrooms received special attention. Marble and distinctive lighting ensured elegance .The main bath was enlarged to add a shower besides the bath. Wooden planters and deck were added to the terrace, giving this outdoor space an inviting atmosphere. Neutral tones were used on walls, window treatment and furniture.
