Existing Condition - The apartment is located on the 1st floor of a brownstone in the East Harlem area. Limited natural light and difficult access to the garden present a disconnect between the exterior and interior.
Design Intent - create a master suite with immediate access to the garden, lower level, and increase natural light.
A new door and three windows are proposed, along the garden wall, allowing for ample natural light, visual connectivity to the outdoors, and ease of access to the garden.
The master bathroom was relocated and placed along the exterior way enjoying a garden view and natural light.
Glass walls and wood screens are used to divide the spaces while allowing a flow of air and space. In general, the intent is to allow a light and airy spatial experience with strong connectivity to the outdoors.
