Although the apartment had existed since 1981, this Manhattan home was originally a 1900s warehouse. Despite the high ceilings, the rooms were a series of confined spaces. Clients Graham Mills and Jac Nolan hired Dale Riedl and his firm, DRD Studio, to open up the the 1,200-square-foot apartment by renovating the living room, kitchen, and half bathroom on the first floor along with the full bathroom and bedroom on the second floor.
By sharing a ceiling, the kitchen and the staircase are intertwined. The staircase contains a built-in refrigerator and storage. The staircase features white oak wood while the kitchen island stands out with white painted millwork and geometric tile.
Underneath the staircase is storage for the couple’s cookbooks.
The renovation provides ample wall space for the couple to display their art collection throughout the home.
Moving up to the second floor, a painting is displayed against a complimentary grey wall.
