Manhattan, New York
Pre-war pedigree meets livable chic in this venerable Park Avenue apartment. A one-time warren of heavily detailed rooms - classic examples of Upper East Side formality - is gutted from floor to ceiling to usher in a new era of contemporary connectivity. Thoughtfully transformed into an oasis of clean urban style, its newly open floor plan is united by monochromatic interiors. Distinguished by an exciting collection of art and accessories - the apartment's only sources of color - rooms are void of ornamentation and instead finished with exceptional materials, including walls clad in high-gloss white lacquer and silver leaf-backed glass.
