Bean Residence completed

The bean residence is a 2400 sf gut renovation in Manhattan. The existing layout fragmented public areas and did not take advantage of natural light.  Through the reconfiguration of the plan and introducing a restrained palette of materials, underutilized spaces become connective zones.  Where the deep floorplate limited the amount of daylight, LED lighting in conjunction with frosted mirrored surfaces emit daylight rendered tones from the side as well as above giving continuity with adjacent sunlit areas.
