Oreste Drapaca Architect

Duplex Apartment, New York City



An extensive renovation in a landmark building close to Central Park, the project was required to be "beautiful, with a romantic atmosphere."

One of the main elements is a chandelier of white glass and gold dust, hand-blown in Murano, located in the double-height salon. Two sliding doors, specially designed, with panels covered with gold leaf protected by hand-blown glass, are in direct dialogue with the chandelier. The fabrics, the wood, the metals and the stone were chosen for the richness of their respective textures.

A series of furniture pieces was designed specifically to meet the owner's brief.

Area: 2000 square feet /
185 square meters.
