Project : H Residence Renovation

Location : Lower Manhattan, NYC

Firm: George Ranalli Architect

Associates: Silman Engineers


George Ranalli Architect’s project for H Residence Renovation combines two ordinary apartments into one stylish and functional home, featuring chic silhouettes and sumptuous color and materials. By removing the existing demising walls, reworking the layout made the most of high ceiling and sunlight accessible through large, north-facing, wood-framed windows. Inserting a sweeping, crimson colored form into the existing spaces shaped a put-together kitchen & panty, crisp powder room, and living-dining space ‘outside,’ a spa-like bath & dressing area ‘behind,’ which includes a gently curving staircase to spacious sleeping lofts ‘above.’  Storage is tucked away behind flaxen-wood grain flat panel cabinets, cupboards, and doors, and marble top surfaces wrap around functional elements. George Ranalli Designs custom furniture reinterprets traditional elements, including a unique marble top dining table, sideboard, and leather upholstered, sheet steel chairs.
