When Peter Occoowitz and Chris Dlutowski bought this pre-war apartment, it had all the original moldings. With architect Stephen Alton, they removed the heavy woodwork and streamlined the apartment into a more modern, livable home. They lightened the space with interior doors composed of two pieces of glass with pink linen pressed between them so that they are literally living with rose-colored glasses.
With limited storage available, Alton used an entire wall for a series of closets. In keeping with the modern aesthetic of his clients, he disguised the wall of closet doors with an artistic arrangement of offset squares.
