A extremely amazing duplex designed by Mark Zeff resides in a historical townhouse in Manhattan. The full renovation of this sophisticated present day dream house took location for a couple who left their glossy higher-rise tower desiring a more natural New York really feel. (The MarkZeff duplex was 1st spotted in Interior Design magazine.)
Encompassing an enviable 4,500 square feet, this 2-story apartment was completely gutted and now reveals beautiful, newly identified surfaces like brick and wood. Zeff also added walls, structures and accents including steel, glass and oak. (Nowhere within the home is sheetrock–a particular pet peeve of the nicely-identified designer.)
A main stunner is the hulking blackened steel cantilevered staircase. This framework (which had to be set up by way of 3 trips by a crane) is bracketed to the adjacent red brick wall, not touching it other than the steel supports, and manages to float within the space in spite of its true excess w7
Broad oak plank flooring was integrated all through to develop a much more relaxed vibe. Authentic ceiling beams were found throughout the demolition, then whitewashed and left exposed. A stark white-painted brick wall displays the couple’s art collection magnificently, whilst an array of antique and vintage finds fill these living places whilst balancing the industrial touches.
2 balcony terraces had been converted into solariums, expanding upon livable area. These light-filled sanctuaries are located off the major residing spot and master bedroom, providing splendid views of the city.
The master suite sprawls across the 2nd story and, in truth, occupies practically 1-third of the entire square footage. A reclaimed, weathered oak ceiling presides more than the sleeping spot, also appearing all through the property. Custom wood paneling clads a single side of the bedroom’s prolonged entrance hallway also becoming a created-in operate desk, although the other wall features floor-to-ceiling steel-framed glass doors which lead to the master bath. With its geometric limestone basins and Venetian plaster walls soaked in red, this bathroom retreat is nothing significantly less than sumptuous.
The kitchen gleams with white glazed subway tiles and a quartz composite island adorned by wood and iron stools. Vintage glass pendants hang above this culinary workspace, although steel assistance columns play striking contrast.
The MarkZeff Duplex is a present day dream residence the place Manhattan chic meets rustic elegance.
