ues triplex maisonette

As the ground floor of this triplex Maisonette apartment was annexed in 1962 and converted into a doctor’s office, the client commissioned Anik Pearson Architect to reconnect the three floors of the apartment with its original entry foyer with a private entrance and to reconfigure the rooms to suit a six-person household and extended family.

The striking palette for this Manhattan apartment was created by pairing cool metallics with the warmth of waxed wide board oak floors, polished Venetian plaster, and glossy stone.

The grandeur of the common rooms was restored and reconstructed with true weight-and-chain mahogany double-hung windows, pocketing doors, and shutters integrated into deep paneled jambs.

The kitchen and family room were designed with all functional and practical elements built into the perimeter, freeing the interior space for the user. A beautifully crafted luxury yacht was the guide for all decisions, including lacquered oak boards with transparent stain, stainless steel boat rails as full-length cabinet pulls, flush cabinet ring pulls, and explosion-proof marine lighting fixtures. Polished concrete countertops are not only warm to the touch but can be seamlessly poured in place in any desired thickness without being limited by the size of the freight elevator.
