The project is a combination and renovation of two adjacent units in an Upper West Side apartment building overlooking the Hudson River. The client is an attorney who was raised on a Native American reservation in Minnesota. She has an extensive collection of Native American art which helped us guide the organization of the apartment.

The contrast of cool, white-washed oak and warm, dark walnut create distinct public and private spaces. The areas in which people will gather have white oak floors with dark walnut cabinets, while the private bedrooms have dark bamboo floors and white oak cabinets. Like a piece of fruit dipped in chocolate, or a Japanese lacquer bento box, the cabinets have a plaster interior and a stained walnut veneer shell on the exterior.

The owner has collections of folk art and paintings from her extensive world travels and her affinity towards the Native Americans. To highlight these objects, custom cabinets are made to purposefully distribute these objects in select areas of the apartment. The owner can curate the displays by seasons, geography or themes.
