Organized Two-Storey Apartments

Light and Air Architecture Designs a Contemporary Dwelling in NY

— March 28, 2019 — Art & Design
Light and Air Architecture have meticulously outfitted this two-storey apartment in Brooklyn's Prospect Heights neighborhood.

Dubbed the 'Sterling Place,' the project was concerned with updating the building's interior — the structure was erected in 1895, to accommodate the pressing modern sensibilities of today. While the architects attempted to preserve key features in the design that give a certain uniqueness to the house, the main concern was to create an open-plan contemporary interior that is bright, balanced and well-organized. As a result, Light and Air Architecture outfits the apartment with custom wooden cabinetry. Moreover, the division of spaces — kitchen, bathroom and living room, in particular, is based on a "volumetric formwork built from Baltic birch." Not only is this feature design-friendly but is also functional as it provides ample storage space.
