As seen on Good Bones, this home had no powder room on the first floor, so Mina and Karen added one. The vanity and mirror tie together to create that elegant, industrial style to match the rest of the home.
As sen on Good Bones, Karen and Mina wanted to create larger rooms throughout the first floor of this restored duplex, so they tore out the walls that separated the spaces, allowing for each room to be a little larger. The kitchen was no exception. This spacious layout includes plenty of counter space and storage, a bar and a pantry in the back of the space.
As seen on Beach Flip, the southern, beach side of all four renovated condos. The Coastal Calm and Gulf Dreams duplex was repainted a bright coastal green and the Southwind and Comfort Breeze duplex a dark blue.
The actual containers used in this home are concealed behind the duplex, and mirror each other, just as the duplex units mirror each other with two bedrooms and three bathrooms. Similarly to designer Patrice Rios’ own container, these function as either an office or guesthouse. Neither contains a bathroom, but there’s easy access to one on the first floor of each unit. Rios is currently designing another duplex in the city that will incorporate shipping containers inside the home.
Designer Patrice Rios of Sige&Honey specializes in customizing shipping containers. Her first foray involved adding a shipping container office to her backyard in Austin. But she’s become associated with building a duplex elsewhere in the city that contains two containers behind it. The duplex itself is designed to look like a container (pictured), complete with a boxy shape and floor-to-ceiling windows.
Set atop a quintessential Upper West Side landmark, this newly constructed full-floor duplex showcases an expansive wraparound terrace with plenty of outdoor seating for hosting cocktails and dinner parties.
