Convertable Suite contemporary
 

Convertable Suite

Everybody loves a hidden room or secret chamber. The challenge of this apartment combination in tony Gramercy Park was to unify the public space while masking the new private master suite and study. The master suite lies hidden beyond a threshold of storage, sliding doors, and rolling bookcases. This thick moving wall of storage serves many roles. The rolling bookcase is a piece of functional art. Patinated aluminum shelves with a perforated spiderweb pattern highlight the threshold. Variable perforation densities allow different levels of privacy and light. Each one can be flipped upside-down and inside-out to allow for fully customizable storage and pattern. Beyond the convertible wall the client wanted a relaxing space to work, rest, and refresh out of plain sight. Two existing baths were combined into one large master bath and dressing area. The bath is modern with spa-like qualities. Strong classic materials and the use of wood flooring on the walls evoke nature. A limited use of exposed hardware mixed with a series of niches and nooks limit visual clutter and reinforce the hidden qualities throughout.

A bedroom is behind the decorative metal panel and a white door. A real sense of privacy is created when the bedroom entrance is behind two layers.
