West End Teen Room Makeover
New York, NY | 2014
A master plan for the full renovation of this Classic 6 West End Avenue apartment was inspired by a teen’s request to move from her large bedroom to the former family study housed in the original maid’s room. With the move, and the total transformation of that space “from cluttered to cool”, opportunities to insert grace to the family’s entertaining spaces sprang forth. Her new room, albeit one with a tight footprint, lacks nothing. A loft bed sits atop a cool diner-like table, book shelving and closet. A new built-in dresser along the window wall completes the composition and brings ample storage to the compact space and the former utilitarian compact in-suite bath now burst with color and comfort.
With this relocation the tight combined living and dining space has spread out into two connected ample spaces that serve the family’s love to bring friends and family together for food and fun. Built-ins and other improvements to the master suite and hall bathroom expand their function and enhance their appearance. Who would imagine that a simple request to switch rooms would inspire so many valued changes!
