LEE RESIDENCE
NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES

The exclusive domain of New York’s Upper East Side is the site of this luxury residential apartment. Located on Park Avenue, the project assembled two simplex apartments to create one spacious 3,500-square-foot duplex. Merging, reconfiguring and renovating these two previously independent units resulted in a uniquely remodeled pre-war apartment consisting of three bedrooms, three full bathrooms, two half baths, a kitchen, kitchenette, dining room, living room, study and maid’s quarters.

The conversion required extensive structural and mechanical interventions, especially rerouting of major roof drains and soil lines for the insertion of an interconnecting circular staircase. The renovation features variable-width plank flooring made from Tasmanian oak; custom-designed nickel silver locksets and doorknobs, shower enclosures, mirrors; marble sinks; furniture including dining tables, vanities and display casework; decorative carpeting; recessed downlights and luminaires.
