Plaza Nursery

Brooklyn, New York. Completed 2010.

A nursery-library-home office-storage solution for a professional couple and their newborn baby in Brooklyn. An existing one-bedroom apartment is reconfigured to create a new interior nursery/bedroom. As an interior room, the space is partitioned using storage components and sliding panels to facilitate the flow of air and light. Laser-cut steel shelves are cantilevered from lacquered CNC-milled surface. Library shelving is located on one side; nursery display on the other.

The project includes a newly renovated kithen with new custom cabinets and a custom dyed concrete concrete tile floor.

The textured surface is CNC milled MDF with a matte lacquer on it. The shelves are laser cut and powder coated steel, and the milled panels hide the mounting so they appear to float.
