Project Description

2011 RADA

Renovation / Merit

“Where’s the fat in this project?” one of our judges asked of this apartment renovation. “There isn’t any.” Who could argue with that? The design team reorganized the existing dumbbell-shaped 510-square-foot apartment, moving the kitchen and bath from the back and deftly inserting them into the narrow middle zone. Two skylights and artificial illumination in a light cove make the space feel bright and airy despite the size, but the pièce de résistance of the project is the clever storage solutions in the floor and walls of the unit, which help create living and sleeping zones. “It’s a lot of nice renovation within a shell,” another judge said approvingly.
