980 5th Avenue in New York by Hollwich Kushner

This gut-renovated apartment is meant to function as an escape from the clents’ ordinary life that is filled with collections and objects.  They are an empty-nest couple, with a big home in the suburbs and a self-declared ‘tchatchki‘ addiction.  A renovation of the existing 2,500sf apartment clears out the center space to visually link the dining room and living room together.  The palette of the apartment is kept simple with white walls and dark floors in order to retain a purity of space.

Instead of articulating every surface of the apartment, pockets of detail are created that can be used for hanging art, displaying collections, arranging family photographs, storing vases, etc. The largest of these pockets is a collection of molding details around the kitchen that appears at the center of the apartment and acts as a constant visual reference as one moves throughout the apartment.
