The dining area gives this communal space seating for six. The garage door adds function and character to the space, both allowing in natural light and giving a nod to the fact that this room was once a garage. To finish off the space, a brown geometric rug was added to define the dining area.
This Manhattan penthouse was fashioned by a previous owner out of storage rooms, a one bedroom apartment and unused space in the building’s decorative turret. Foley Fiore Architecture were tasked by the current owners to remodel the space to update the home to include ample communal living spaces comfortable for a young family with two teenage children. The living room includes a stylish, modern fireplace with a ceiling-mounted daybed swing.
This open concept living and dining room is comfortable and communal, making this space great for entertaining. Filling in the "TV Hole" above the fireplace is functional pull-out storage. Updated finishes and light airy colors create a relaxing but warm environment.
This view from the entry into the parlor shows the home's original pocket doors that allow the parlor to be closed off, to make the space feel like a private sanctuary away from the rest of the home's more open and communal main living areas.
