Park Avenue Residence
New York, NY
We completely reconfigured this 5,000 sq ft apartment, remodeling every space and renewing every fitting.
The architecture and decoration of the principal rooms have a strong Soanian theme, which is enhanced by Anglo-French detailing in the style of Thomas Hope and furniture and antiques of the period bought specially for the apartment by David Mlinaric and Hugh Henry. One of the principal features of this apartment is the way it was conceived as a home for a remarkable collection of books. In addition to a neo-Classical library, bookshelves are integrated into the walls of the study and into the dining room, which also doubles as a library. The Soane-inspired library is ingeniously fitted into an interior hall beside the master bedroom suite.
