Purpose & Scope
This 60’s building presented a serious challenge for a small penthouse with a great terrace– a typical galley kitchen with a wonderful skylight was sandwiched between the small dining room and odd wall configurations. I knew we could create a phenomenal transformation depending on how much wall had to remain for the existing plumbing, building ventilation chases and roof drains. The goal was to create a great open space for entertainment and bring the outdoor terrace into the mix. We had a fabulous footprint to work with from the terrace side, so the design challenge was to integrate the interior seamlessly and transform this kitchen to incorporate dining at the peninsula with a sleek, open contemporary loft interior style.
