In 2021, Design42 executed a remarkable transformation within a pre-war co-op nestled in the Murray Hill Historic District. The project revolved around a strategic alteration, aiming to breathe new life into the kitchen and living space. We proposed to open up the enclosed galley kitchen, visually connecting it with the living area. This not only flooded the space with natural light but also created an expansive, open layout perfect for entertaining.

The revitalization included new finishes throughout the residence, however, the introduction of modern appliances and an updated HVAC system ensured optimal functionality and comfort. The result was a harmonious blend of historic charm and contemporary living, a testament to Design42's ability to respect the past while embracing the future in one of Manhattan's most iconic neighborhoods.
