Art and Light Apartment in New York by Andrew Mikhael Architect

Imagined as a gallery for the client’s artwork and lifestyle – colorful and social.

The apartment, in a building that was originally a factory, looked like a regular old rental when we started: home depot finishes, awkward walls, a tiny master bath and a powder room. My clients brightened it up with their colorful art collection, and I wanted to design a home for them that would inspire and freshen their palate and complement the artwork for their frequent home parties.

House parties are a regular event here and inspired many of our design decisions. The front door opens directly into the kitchen – the center of party action. I designed the cabinetry as a geometric composition to play off the art and feel of this gallery home.

Previously, a window of frosted glass block punctuated the hallway. Unfortunately, it overlooked a perpetually dark courtyard and illuminated nothing. I changed this into an art installation of light. With its multiple settings, one can rotate through a selection of colors to wash the space in colored light, instantly changing the mood and feel of the space.

Anchored from the doorway, both the angular vanity of folding corian & walnut and the vanity light point their energy inward.

The bedroom is enclosed by large scale sliding doors which double as art walls. These movable walls may be closed for privacy while entertaining guests and opened to integrate the bedroom and living room into one open space.
