The deluxe gut renovation of West 10th Street, a federal style townhouse, constituted the redistribution of spaces by dividing the building's interior into four spacious condominium units containing two duplexes, a single-floor unit and a penthouse. Three of the four units have spacious outdoor terraces, including the penthouse with its 900 square foot roof terrace. All four units feature two bedrooms, two wood burning fireplaces, and multiple skylights.

Exposed brick walls, wood flooring and stone mantles convey an undeniable sense of home throughout each apartment, and the kitchen, which opens out to the main space, compliments it and yet stands its own.

Special consideration was given to the interior design of kitchens and bathrooms.

Integrating the functionality of a modern cook's kitchen within the confines of the urban apartment setting was a challenge. Each cabinet was planned to provide not only a variety storage options but also efficiency and maximum comfort, from spice racks on each side of the stove, a full height sliding pantry, to how a cabinet door will open. Stainless steel appliances and hardware are a perfect complement to the richness of the cabinetry and the sleekness of the glass and marble.

Dark Wenge finishes give the spaces an anchoring quality while white marble and frosted glass offer a soothing and relaxing effect.

A truly functional and beautiful space for the family to gather and enjoy, the open kitchens are an example of the intricate detailing of the interiors, with their Italian custom-crafted cabinetry, Carrara marble countertops and professional-grade appliances, uniting in the perfect marriage of aesthetics and convenience in this little gem in Manhattan's Greenwich Village.
