Stefan Boublil designed this apartment on the 61st floor on a metropolitan tower in New York that overlooks Central Park.
Here is the project description:
Combining 3 smaller apartments into one at one of new york city’s most coveted uptown addresses, we delivered a stunning new dwelling on the 61st floor of the metropolitan tower. Every single room is constructed so that the postcard view of central park is the star.
With a built-in wraparound sofa, a secret door in the solid walnut library and distributed surround sound all over the home, this project is an ode to the 80s during which the building was erected.
Suited for a family of 4 with 2 children, the communal living spaces stands in between the master suite and the kids’ rooms, hidden behind the aforementioned trap door in the library, thereby providing a buffer of sight and sound.
I might describe the final result as having a monastery + cowboy ranch + 80s vibe…
The kitchen and dining area is the only one wrapped in waxed concrete thereby giving it a theatrical feel, especially when seen from the rest of the apartment which is clad in bleached pine and subdued colors.
