Architectural duo BoND set out to rearrange and refurbish this elongated home, located on the third floor of a building in New York's Chelsea neighborhood. The structure dates back to the early 1900s and much like many pre-war residential spaces, the layout of the apartment prevented the open reception of light.
The elongated home was acquired by BoND's Daniel Rauchwerger and Noam Dvir. The duo channeled the potential of the space, accentuating the high ceilings and large windows. Integrating a stainless steel fireplace and "'hacked' IKEA cabinets," BoND added welcome modern elements to the space. In addition, the architectural duo opened up the apartment by removing some inner constructions and thus created a well-lit elongated home interior that "maximizes the illusion of depth," while still attributing to an overall contemporary aesthetic.
