Chelsea Apartment
new York NY


Fosters and Partners recently completed a Chelsea apartment tower and we were asked by the client to collaborate with the interior designer Ryan Korban to refine and transform the interior surfaces and built-ins, crafting an intensely rich space.

The elevator doors open, immediately presenting the apartment gallery.  This long hall is dressed with Venetian plaster, custom furniture and cast chandeliers.  From the gallery you can enter the study or living room.  The study has a shagreen desk and shelving for books and objects behind. In the living room we clarified the symmetry by centering a new fireplace with Nero Marquina surround, set in front of a dark mirrored wall.  The ceiling is washed with light from the integrated cove and the floor is black, increasing the contrast of the room.   

On the private side of the house we added to the existing rift sawn cabinets in the dressing room that enters on to the main bedroom on one side, adorned with gray suede wallpaper. On the other, the main bathroom with new integrated whirlpool with corian surround and mirror. In the other bedroom, we designed a suite of cabinets with pocketing doors to hold the client’s clothing archive.  The apartment has many moods, open on the terrace, inviting in the gallery and living room, and intimate in the bedrooms.
