200 Central Park South (Apartment Floor Combination)
Scope of the Project
This full apartment renovation converted an entire floor into a one-of-a-kind apartment designed for entertaining, with 5000 square feet of interior space and a 5000-square-foot terrace outside. The $5 million budget included $1 million in custom millwork and a $650,000 audio/video budget for lighting control, shades, a media room and an art installation of flat-screen televisions in the entry displaying ongoing time-lapse video of Times Square, Columbus Circle and Central Park. The project also called for Herringbone mahogany floors, custom furnishings and custom accents throughout, as well as custom coverings for the risers and additional infrastructure for supplemental air conditioning.
This large apartment included seven bathrooms, all of which we fully renovated. The owner gave our design team freedom to come up with some truly unique designs, including a futuristic powder room with stainless steel tiles and LED lighting. Other bathrooms featured custom tile work and custom wood doors fabricated in our own workshop.
The apartment included two large bedrooms, both of which were fully remodeled. Standout features of the master bedroom include the beautiful wooden panels behind the king size bed, custom bedside tables and a stylish credenza, all of which KNG fabricated in house. The master bedroom also features a marvelous drop ceiling to help bring out the room’s personality.
The apartment kitchen was completely renovated to custom design specifications. Features include fabricated glass counter tops and plenty of custom built-in cabinets and drawers which were fabricated and finished in KNG’s architectural woodwork shop.
A highlight of the apartment, the study (known as “The Den”) took six weeks to complete on its own. This stunning room features extensive custom rosewood paneling, furnishings and built-ins, fabricated with a silky smooth finish in our workshop. The Den also includes a Murphy bed hidden in the custom paneling and custom cabinetry accessible through a sliding door.
Lounge, Bar and Media Room
The apartment features ample space for entertaining, including a custom bar, generous lounge area and media room. We crafted the bar’s custom glass top with patina finish, along with a beautiful backdrop of Australian lace wood. We also fabricated and plastered the drop ceilings and curved walls, finishing these with a level five skim coat finish. This area also featured two iconic art installations which also serve to cover the risers.
Despite the many tasks and challenges faced in this expansive renovation, we were able to satisfy our client’s expectations fully. This project enabled us to show the full breadth of our abilities to create truly unique NYC spaces. For a consultation on your needs and wants with your next apartment renovation, give us a call.
