Sleek Downtown Residential Space Maximizes Views and Flexibility

The interior of this small apartment in New York was designed by Jordan Parnass Digital Architecture.

Description by Jordan Parnass: The clients for this residential space came to us seeking a solution to minimize clutter and maximize flexibility for their high floor unit in New York’s Battery Park City. The apartment’s small interior footprint is tempered by a large roof deck with expansive views of downtown manhattan, so maintaining a strong visual connection to the outdoor space was a priority.

Our solution was to create a series of “active wall” millwork insertions that use folding and sliding partitions to conceal and reveal workspaces, doors, storage, dining and video screens. The panels serve as a unifying visual motif beginning at the entry foyer and extending into the living room, bedrooms, bath and kitchen areas.
