A 2,000 sf garden apartment on one of Manhattan’s iconic downtown streets takes full advantage of the light and texture the exterior has to offer. The main living area opens up to the sunny walled garden, lined with river stone, extending the sense of space, allowing the inside to reflect on the passage of time only natural sunlight can offer. Heirloom furnishings in American walnut create a solid, timeless interior environment, with a casual appeal. A layered aesthetic is created in the main living space where all family life congregates. Throughout, the furniture, light fixtures, and wall surfaces are carefully curated to reflect the owners impeccable taste and sensibilities.
