Skillman Apartments

Sunnyside, New York

Program: Pair of Apartments
Area: 500sf each
Status:  Completed 2018 & 2021

Located on the second floor above Heim Architect’s Studio, this pair of apartments offer two distinct experiences.  The front apartment overlooks charming Skillman Avenue and the active street life while the rear apartment faces the rear garden and courtyard with ample light and trees.  The apartments are basically mirrored units.  The main living space was opened to include the kitchen and dining area with three large windows.  The front apartment has gray kitchen cabinets and the rear denim blue. The finishes in the kitchens and bathrooms are clean and contemporary. Ample storage was provided in the hallway, bedroom and kitchen pantry.  The apartment pair share a new arched entry with a restored wood staircase.  A large skylight bathes the entry sequence from the street with natural light.  Energy efficient appliances and fixtures were used throughout and fans provide improved natural ventilation.  The renovation of the Skillman Apartments completes the entire building renovation.
