This absolutely one of kind labor of love was a

combination of two existing top floor studios with a new mezzanine added, this apartment utilized

various materials publically observed in New York City, such as subway train doors and other

Manhattan. Ephemera centric. The traditional four basic elements: Fire, Earth, Water and Air are used as the main organizing principles of the project. Water for example, is represented by a vertical shower stall surrounded by glass in the mezzanine master suite. A sunken plunge pool surrounded by Mexican beach stones sits directly under it emphasize the water core This project continues to garner critical acclaim, as well as international and local press alike. Construction was an eclectic mixed bag of custom pieces alongside off the shelf items, Similar iconography is found for the other elements. This remains one of more

interesting projects we have ever accomplished to date.
