A wide bank of south-facing windows and generously proportioned rooms were the gifts of this New York City apartment. We capitalized on them by opening everything up as much as possible to that light and scale, particularly the boxed-in kitchen. Unifying everything with a limited palette—concrete-finished walls, gray-washed wood floors and statuary marble accents—enhanced a loft-like sensibility that telegraphs the feel of a single, smoothly continuous gesture. It also establishes an organic rhythm of connectivity for the young family who lives here, and the natural morphing of spaces into each other allows for greater adaptability to gatherings of all sizes.
