Objectives and Challenges

 

The exterior wall contained only small windows and one door leading to the unit’s outside space. In addition to requiring a full renovation of the interior space, the owner wanted more natural light and easier access to the outside. This required installation of larger windows and patio doors, as well as a sprucing up of the exterior.

 

 

 

What We Did

 

KNG completed a full renovation and restoration of this apartment inside and out, completing the work in approximately 5 months for a total cost of less than $1 million. Some of the outstanding features of this project included the following.

 

Pre-finished whitewashed oak floors

 

One of this project’s unique features was the installation of radiant heat pre-finished floors of whitewashed oak, which created a sleek, sophisticated look throughout the apartment while adding luxury and comfort.

 

Plaster reveal beads

 

A plaster reveal beads style was applied throughout the apartment, creating a narrow strip between the wall and the floor panels to create clean lines and a stylish, luxurious finish.

 

Level 5 drywall with skim coat

 

The highest quality drywall was installed throughout the unit with a skim coat applied to create a smooth interior appearance with straight, crisp corners.

 

Angled acoustic drop ceilings

 

KNG installed acoustic drop (suspended) ceilings throughout the apartment, which not only absorb sound and reduce echo, but also add visual dimension and drama, especially in the living area. The 3-dimensional look complements the décor of the apartment and presents an airy and modern feel to the residence.

 

Floor-to-ceiling windows/patio doors

 

One of the most stunning improvements to the apartment was the installation of floor-to-ceiling windows with multiple patio doors across the exterior wall, affording easy access to the 1000-square-foot garden outside. This addition allowed the living space to be flooded with natural light and increased the sense of space by creating a generous indoor-outdoor feel.

 

Exterior refinishing

 

The exterior of the apartment was refinished with paneling that was fabricated in KNG’s own in-house workshop and installed by our master craftsmen. A whitewash finish was also applied to the apartment doors to enhance the property’s chic design.

 

Garden landscaping

 

As a finishing touch, KNG oversaw the complete landscaping of the outdoor garden, including the installation of an underground irrigation system.

 

 

End Result

 

Operating within a tight budget and an even tighter time frame, KNG Construction was able to transform a dated, dark ground floor apartment into an inviting light-filled space with a modern aesthetic, one that makes excellent use of its square footage while creating a stronger connection to the outside space.

 

Our Unique Approach…

 

One of the key factors that differentiates KNG from other general contractors in New York City is the fact that we employ our own tradesmen to do everything in-house. Where other construction companies subcontract much of their work, we have found that the key to quality control and effective construction management is to do the work ourselves. From fabricating custom millwork in our own shop to employing only the best tradespeople, we have learned that the personal touch enables us to maintain the highest standards of quality while staying on time and in budget. It’s just one of the reasons our work has been featured on Million Dollar Listing and in House Beautiful, and why we continue to be called upon to renovate and refresh some of the most coveted spaces in Manhattan and New York City.
