Anna Karlin’s multi-disciplinary creative studio has designed 11 model apartments for One Manhattan Square, a new luxury residential building on NYC’s Lower East Side filled with great home ideas. Transformed from white-walled units, each apartment tells the story of the unique characters who may someday come to inhabit the space. The richly layered final product speaks to the ‘home ideal’ of each one of the characters the studio developed. Let’s take a look at one of the most ambitious interior design projects!
Intentional space planning and programming bring the conceptual home ideas to life, with floor plans designed specifically for each hypothetical character and their imagined lifestyle. Home design choices honor their distinct identities, while also resulting in spaces that speak to the vision of the Studio. Customized furnishings and fixtures allowed for optimum use of space, with the final layouts being efficient and elegant while integrating the necessary programmatic elements of a luxury New York City residence.
A blend of vintage, design classics and custom furnishings are paired with textural elements in finishes that enhance the depth of personality of contemporary design. Curated details like art and styling, tie the storylines together. A ‘Green Sanctuary’ apartment for an urban gardener gives seclusion from city life, with serene energy encouraged by light and natural tones. In ‘Place for Entertaining’, a welcoming space designed for a host encourages congregation and conversation with soft textures and warm hues. These home ideas are certainly to die for!
