This small 1980s condominium was choppy and compact. Although it was advertised as a clean, contemporary space for business executives when it was first built, instead it felt more like an economy apartment. Our client wanted a contemporary remodel to maximize their 600 square feet by creating additional storage and unifying the design with a renewed sense of style. Incorporating unused space above existing closets, we satisfied the client’s request for more storage. We expanded the kitchen island and added comfortable seating to accommodate the homeowner’s needs for intimate dining as well as larger gatherings. Built-in custom cabinets house the television, providing an area for casual TV watching, without disrupting the room’s harmony. The finished design uses a mix of custom cabinets and finishes to create a sense of warmth suitable for both relaxing and entertaining.
A curved wall of cabinetry creates a dramatic entry that defines the path into the living room and kitchen. Now this home feels more like a penthouse than an apartment.
