Jennifer and Jason

How do you marry a modernist sensibility to a penchant for color and whimsy? Easy. They’d already married each other; I just had to design a renovation for them. Jason and Jennifer, clients from an earlier project, got the chance to trade up when the studio apartment next to them became available, offering the opportunity for daylight that their old apartment lacked. A full-scale gut renovation creates loft-like openness with a wall of windows that fills the new kitchen with sunshine. Meanwhile, an ingenious lighting design behind wooden blinds creates faux sunshine at the back windows, which open onto an air shaft.
