Starting from a traditional one bedroom he found ugly and closed-off, Sanders took down the wall separating the bedroom from the living area and installed a louvered wall instead. The bedroom features curved walls, and a continuous window wall ensconces the entire space. At one point, a window passes from the kitchen through the bath allowing one to take in the 8th Avenue view from the kitchen—through what is traditionally the most private of spaces. A sliding panel is available to close the bathroom off when it's in use. Cavities throughout the apartment walls allow Sanders to hide away the radiator and other items whose presence might run counter to his desire for openness and spaciousness.
