Small Project Structures
East Village Studio; New York City
Jordan Parnass Digital Architecture
Living and working in just under 500 square feet, the client had been pushing the limits of what his studio, in Manhattan's East Village, would accommodate but he loved the neighborhood, and appreciated the environmental benefits of having such a minimal footprint.
The architects pointed out that the client had been occupying the space without ever really living in it, nothing had a home. They goal, they decided, should be to embed his lifestyle into the DNA of the place. Let his living patterns sculpt and mold the space to create an elegant and efficient environment.
The solution was ultimately to combine the kitchen, bath, sleeping loft and a new walk-in closet into an intricately sculpted wood-paneled central service core. The space outside of the core area would remain as flexible as possible, with millwork finished in a high-gloss white to read as part of the shell and stand in contrast to the wooden service core.
Construction Cost in whole dollars 100,000
