MAKING SPACE IN MANHATTAN

We just received images of a newly completed 3 bedroom Manhattan apartment designed by Guillaume Gentet
65 West 13th
Street (The Greenwich) is a full service pre‐war condo in a prime Greenwich Village location. This 12‐floor building was constructed in 1905 as a former Macy’s department store, and converted to luxury condos in 2001.
A young professional couple with a toddler and twins on the way needed two more bedrooms and an extra bathroom to accommodate their expanding family. Preserving space for entertainment and incorporating their previously purchased art into the final design were also priority.
The former kitchen area was converted into a discreet office space and laundry room that opened into a third bathroom for the children. The dining area was divided to create an additional two bedrooms for the kids. The partition separating the children’s rooms was designed to be easily removable for maximum flexibility.
On the opposite side of the loft, plumbing was installed for the newly constructed kitchen. Next to the kitchen, custom cabinetry was built along the periphery of the living room. The lofted mezzanine was doubled to make room for additional storage space, the children’s play room and a guest alcove.
