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.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

A threshold between a living space and master suite is articulated here with "patinated aluminum shelves with a perforated spiderweb pattern." Each horizontal piece can be flipped to vary the pattern and the light entering the space. It's a custom installation that stands out from the minimal finishes it is layered upon.
