250 West 85th Street, New York, NY
This outdated duplex penthouse apartment was in need of a complete facelift and renovation. Beginning with a stuffy layout and narrow small windows, the space was completely revamped, including relocating the stairwell, minimizing interior walls and expanding usable floor area. A large component of the redesign was to consolidate and expand closet space and amplify the natural lighting from the three exposed exterior walls. The wrap-around top-floor terrace of 850 square feet was incorporated into the design by utilizing the most efficient access points from both levels of the penthouse.
