Rockefeller Apartments II

Designing for a modern landmark

For our most recent project in the Rockefeller Apartments building, we combined a classic six room and a classic four room apartment into a modern and spacious home.  The building itself, a 1937 Streamline Moderne icon designed by Harrison & Foulhoux with Edward Durrell Stone as its Project Architect, set the tone for the project’s design. The combined apartments include public spaces made from the classic 6 – expanded foyer, living room, dining room, and library – logically joined to a private master suite made from the classic four.  The design vocabulary incorporates the building’s original spirit and detailing, replicating its modernist details such as the flush base and crown-less picture rail.

Key Details:

  • Seamlessly incorporated principles from loft-like open planning with contemporary conveniences, while maintaining the historic integrity of the apartments.
  • Retained or repurposed original historic details such as doorknobs and recessed picture rails supplemented with pivot doors and pocket doors.
  • New central air conditioning, art lighting, a library, and new spacious marble tiled master bath
