Middle Village Apartment

Middle Village, New York

Program: Apartment Renovation
Area: 730sf
Status: Design 2019

Located in a 1970s low rise apartment complex in a residential area of central Queens, this one bedroom apartment required a complete renovation to provide updated kitchen and bathroom but also to explore ways to provide more light to the interior as well as reorganize storage. Several basic plan layouts were explored.  The key to the design is the relationship of the kitchen to the dining and living spaces as it was originally isolated and small.  Opening the kitchen will also provide more natural light to access this area.  The bathroom will be enlarged to include a washer dryer with direct access to an ample walk in bedroom closet.  A new glass transom topped interior partition will encourage light to flow through the apartment.
