Apartment 2-G is a gracious studio unit (609 square feet) with just about everything one could ask for in a studio space. There is a sleeping alcove, an entry foyer, a dressing area and a spacious walk-through kitchen.  Other features include high ceilings (12’6”), oversized windows, a walk-in-closet and washer/dryer connections.

And there’s more.  Original details have been preserved and reclaimed pinewood floors have been added.

Given the design of the apartment, the kitchen serves not only as a proper kitchen but as a graceful passageway to the living room.  Accordingly, the kitchen is artfully designed and elegantly serves both functions.  Custom cream colored lacquer cabinetry, honed marble countertops and backsplash, a white cast-iron sink as well as an integrated appliance package create a dignified setting.
