Surgery #10

Full renovation of 7500 square feet house
The Schlank family a returning client purchased a new house in Greenwich, CT and moved from New York City to have more room for the kids to be outdoors. The house somewhat generic, needed to be gutted and renovated but also personalized and de-spec’d. Josephine Schlank who is an art advisor and collector needed lots of wall space for her diverse art collection. She uses art to tell her point of view which also animates the family, she describes the emotions of the room with the art, and the happy monkey is in her little boy’s room. The neon art at hallway off of the entry, states, “please do not touch the art work”, of course she has 3 kids, 2 boys who often attempt to play hockey in the house. In the kitchen, she has a huge ‘Nutella’ drawing, if this does not make you hungry, what will? The Art work was curated by Joey and Farnaz to provide the layering as one move through the house. The kids’ rooms each adopt a color of their preference but the room is mainly neutral with an accent set by them, the organization is such that everything has a place.
Architecturally quite a bit changed. 2nd powder room off of the Den was removed so the circulation between the Living room, den and the eat-in kitchen is holistic and visually connected. The dining room and den are offset by each other, the den leans into the open yard, which has a rolling rocky landscape and the dining room views the entrance.
