Chelsea Parlor Apartment
This 820 sq ft apartment takes up the entire Parlor level floor in a 1850s townhouse in West Chelsea. The 12’ ceilings in the public areas – the living room and kitchen – are remarkably higher than those in the bedroom and the bathrooms. To create a better sense of flow in the space, and to mitigate the height difference, we introduced two diagonal ceilings.
An arched library built in the living room provides the space a sense of hierarchy, grandeur, and scale, together with a newly designed marble fireplace and crown moldings.
