In early 2023, Design42 undertook the revitalization of a pre-war co-op nestled in the Upper West Side of NYC. The project aimed to address the challenges posed by an inadequately sized galley kitchen and bathroom, seeking to create a more comfortable and functionally planned living space for the residents.

The reimagined kitchen and bathroom became the cornerstones of the transformation, showcasing a thoughtful approach to design that embraced contemporary aesthetics and practicality. By optimizing the layout, we enhanced the flow of the space, ensuring it was not only more comfortable for everyday living but also well-suited for entertaining. This project exemplifies Design42's commitment to enhancing the quality of life through forward-thinking and transformative design solutions.
