The first task for our New York interior designers was to determine a layout of the lounge that would be conducive to gatherings large and small. A large round fireplace had previously dominated the center of the space, breaking up the space and limiting the size of groups that could gather together in the lounge. By reshaping the layout of the space and adding a modern, rectangular fireplace to create one gathering area, we were able to maximize usable square footage and make it the focus of the main lounge area while integrating the residents’ sizable lending library.
Creating a modern design that worked within the building’s curvilinear architecture, In-Site reimagined the lounge to be upscale, welcoming, and attractive. Materials selected for the space are versatile and easy to clean to accommodate the many ways the space would be used, by residents ranging from children to seniors. We utilized pops of color, rich textures, custom cabinetry, and surprising asymmetrical details to create a beautiful long-range vista of the space as a whole as well as thoughtful, small details for close-up viewing.
