No. 10 MODERN + PRE-WAR
New York City
This pre-war house up in the Riverdale section of The Bronx, has lots of existing character to i
The challenge for this project was to create a more modern style kitchen and dining room, while still uniting it with the pre-war style of the surrounding home. To achieve this, we chose a dark ‘wood look’ tile floor that warmed the gray and minimalist cabinetry design, and carried in the brown color from the rest of the home.
Having an eat in kitchen, and a place to use her laptop on occasion, was also very important to this homeowner. To keep the flow of the space in the rectangular shaped kitchen, we created a round table connected to the cabinetry, to prevent sharp corners and keep the table minimal.
In the dining room, we created a custom credenza and cabinet for additional storage and decorative pieces. The final design offers an abundance of storage space, while bringing in a more modern design to a traditional home.
