Project Description

Fifth Avenue Penthouse

The design for this penthouse apartment on Fifth Avenue, in Manhattan, began by razing the existing interiors, which were beset by low ceilings and a complicated layout. In its place, 1100 Architect created a coherent interior that opens up the previously partitioned space. Sliding elements allow for interior adaptability, while storage space is discreetly incorporated into the walls. The design includes resized window openings, which introduced consistent proportions to the space and maximized exposure to natural light. An expansion, carried out in a second phase, added a second floor connected by a new staircase.
