When Ray Warman and his partner first looked at this turn-of-the-century apartment, it seemed too small. But the apartment had lots of windows and magical light. With architect Lynnette Widder, they made major efforts to refurbish the woodwork and blend modern functionality with historic character. What makes the space work is different rooms for different purposes. Now it feels grand and classy.

Ray was conscious of designing the kitchen with a balance of old and modern. The built-in table reflects the line of a grand piano: a modern solution to lack of space for a dining table with a nod to a traditional design element.
