In Focus | Chelsea Pied-a-Terre by Stadt Architecture

Originally from Southwestern Canada, the owners of this incredible apartment located in downtown Manhattan, wanted a piece of greenery in the city that never sleeps. With the help of Stadt Architecture, their ideas were turned to reality, with clever custom creations and details in their petite New York apartment. High on the wish-list was a reconfiguration of the layout, focused on changing the dark and gloomy original kitchen into a Calacatta marble working space which is now drenched in glorious daylight. Quality materials segregate each zone in the apartment; the wet areas with large format terrazzo tiles and pale herringbone in the living and dining space.

“Two large acid-etched glass doors close obscuring visual details while still allowing natural light to filter through the apartment’s different spaces.”

As part of the mission to bring Vancouver's green landscape into the spaces, saturated green tones reign supreme in the apartment. A focal point is the hand-painted, gold-leafed wall covering which is 'dripping' onto the bespoke bed and lighting.
