From residential renovation to corporate construction, our expertise gives us a particular insight, merging our clients visions and beliefs with an understanding of the technical side of construction.


When presented with the 230 West 56 Street project, we immediately understood the task at hand. With stunning views and spectacular foundations in place, our team was eager to get started on the renovation of this remarkable property.


Residential Renovation Project


To expose the true nature of this penthouse, the first phase was to gut the existing interior allowing a novel concept of this space to present itself. All interior finishes, windows, plumbing and heating systems were stripped down to shell form giving us the property’s full area of 1200 square foot to work with.


Throughout the apartment, the walls were treated with a level 5 skim coat to create an elegant, smooth finish. The location of the penthouse allows for a lot of natural light, in which the level 5 painted walls will be able to withstand any conditions and appear as flat as glass.


The walls in the study have been lined with textured layers of silk and suede fabric, giving the room an exquisite look and luxurious feel.


Contemporary Design and Remodelling


The kitchen was redesigned to give the rest of the penthouse a modern standpoint. The contemporary kitchen is centralized around a two-toned Macassar ebony wood kitchen. Macassar ebony (also known as striped ebony) originated from southeast Asia and was exclusively picked due to its powerful, clear and dark tonality. The kitchen cabinets have been applied with numerous coats of polyester based lacquer, followed by polishing. The result gives off a clean, lustrous and modern looking kitchen.


The kitchen countertops are designed from two prosperous forms of marble; Bianco and Specchio, with a backsplash differ. To finish the of the kitchen remodel, we added custom made crackled glass back which beautifully supports the bottle shelving.


Luxurious Finishing and Custom Made Furniture


The bathroom in the property was inspired and designed from by the traditional New York alluring lavatories. The luxurious bathroom has been fitted with custom-made Calacatta gold marble tiles, complementing the bathrooms natural greige undertone.


The spacious master bedroom not only offers a gorgeous view but has been tailored with high polished wood burl paneling and side tables finished with high polished lacquer. Standing over the master bed, a custom made upholstered fabric headboard fills the room with a clean and elegant aura.


Separating the kitchen and the living room is a large custom made glass partition wall. Glass was chosen as the ideal material to exhibit an open plan feel to divide the penthouse accordingly without restricting the open space and overlooking views. The living room bursts with charm with a custom designed metal coffee table in the heart of the room. In the living room, you will find a custom made desk and cabinets with Saint Laurent marble top. The desk is placed right by the window, overlooking the New York City skyline and the iconic Central Park.
