The UWS Apartment occupies the first floor of a narrow 1970s condominium conversion in New York’s Upper West Side, which is split across three levels. Stadt Architecture has paired existing brickwork walls with walnut floors, bright white cabinets and purple furniture in the renovation.

The kitchen and dining room are on the lowest storey, with a set of steps leading to the lounge, while the bedroom and the bathroom occupy a mezzanine floor above. Stadt Architecture wanted to offer cohesion between these separate spaces, so inserted custom-made walnut flooring and furniture, including a narrow breakfast bar that replaces the dining table.

A long set of the cabinets runs along one of the lounge walls, featuring an open shelf lined in purple. The hue provides an accent across the interior, and neutral finishes in the lounge include the L-shaped sofa, lightweight white curtains and circular glass pendant lighting.

The studio also rearranged the mezzanine floor to create a larger bedroom and bathroom for the resident. The existing balustrade was removed and replaced with a wooden bed and headboard, which slightly extends towards the lounge. Extra storage is built into the bed base, while the reconfiguration freed up space along the back wall for wardrobes.

Eighteen inches were added to the bathroom by replacing the existing straight staircase, with a version that dog-legs around the lift. White tiles line the walls complementing the white bathroom suite, while the floor is covered with a graphic grey and white tile.

Most of the apartment is done in creamy and neutral shades, with grey furniture and a rug and some purple furniture for an accent
