Architect Joel Sanders believes that it's time to seriously reconsider traditional notions of domestic space—to stop thinking about closed-off rooms, but rather, fluid zones of domestic activity. It's a principle he's put into practice for his high-profile New York clients and recently in the redesign of his own West Village apartment. His 650-square-foot home is designed both for his comfort and to exercise his own architectural creativity, a means to find clever new ways to maximize a sense of open space.
The windows do more than just bathe the apartment in natural light; the windowsills offer a continuous block for storage thanks to their recessed pocket. Sanders also cut out a recessed area next to the window to mimic the size and shape of the window.
