It's always such a joy to have our work featured, but I especially loved getting to talk to Pilar Vidalas at 1st Dibs. We discussed how I'm getting through quarantine, our office in NYC, some latest projects, and what's inspiring me now. One of the latest projects featured in this piece was this Tribeca interior design we recently completed.
The owners are a family from Toronto who owns an international shipping company. They recently relocated their home base from Canada to the US. It’s at 11 Beach Street, New York in Tribeca, which is a recently opened building designed by BKSK and Thomas Juhl Hansen. We completely renovated the interior from top to bottom to accommodate their Tribeca Interior Design. First, they transitioned from Canada to the US. But the second was from suburban to city life as they downsized from a large home in the Toronto suburbs. They wanted the details and comfort of their very traditional home in Canada, but also an environment conducive to their new modern city lifestyle.
The original apartment entry had low ceilings and no storage at all. We wanted to create a sequence of discovery by designing a cerused oak built-in with a coat closet clad in antiqued mirror. First, adjustable shelves house finds from the clients’ vast travels. Then, grasscloth paper in alternating patterns give the walls texture. Continuing down, custom rugs add just the right amount of softness and pattern. Finally, an upholstered bench provides a perch for putting on shoes.
