Residential  |  New York, New York  

This tiny kitchen and bathroom renovation had big ambitions to make a formerly cramped apartment open and airy. The transformation began by demolishing the existing kitchen, which was the size of a small closet, and making space for the new layout. During the demolish process, we found an undocumented vertical gas pipe that could not be moved and that was located directly in the middle of the soon-to-be countertop. The quick but well-considered design solution involved building a new kitchen wall and making a "thick" backsplash with carved-out marble storage areas. The resulting design remained practical and beautiful; two descriptions that Dean Works strives for in every project.
