The before/after photographs of this project are arresting (see our web site). This apartment's framework has everything a designer could want right off: symmetry, scale and sunlight. By eliminating or relocating just a few walls, what was an awkward, circuitous series of small rooms and partial closets became a wide-open, useful living space to orchestrate dinner, relax in one of the several spacial living areas, nestle in the cozy breakfast nook, or entertain a Thanksgiving feast for 30 — children included. Storage can be found everywhere but seen nowhere. The custom ottomans lift their trays to reveal ample hidden storage — if the kitchen cabinetry, entertainment system and storage buffet fall improbably short.
