An Upper West Side Apartment - New York

A family in the entertainment industry wanted to renovate an apartment overlooking Central Park they had recently purchased. The building, originally built in 1910 by architect William Wilhelm Wilkerson in the Arts and Crafts style, was named after the architect's ancestral home in County Durham, England.
The brief was to successfully combine three apartments on the 11th floor, into one for a family of 6. All three apartments had not been renovated in many years and required a full gut renovation, with all new  exterior windows and doors, and a new full HVAC system throughout. The family wanted comfortable spaces for everyday living, incorporating the Arts and Crafts style into the architecture creating a sense of history that connected with the building. 
A few original details survived, including an original inglenook fireplace and clay tile floor in the Living Room, and original french doors and paneling in the octagonal Dining Room. A cosy office was created for the husband, in american black walnut, hand scraped, stained and distressed giving the impression the room was original to the building.
