With tinted white walls, natural plank floors, and uncomplicated furnishings we sought to create a retreat from the clamor of New York’s streets. The renovation expanded the resident’s single bedroom apartment that was the rear half of the building’s third floor to now occupy the entire floor. With the challenge of designing a sanctuary within a tourist center of New York, we took inspiration from Scandinavia minimalism and Japanese interconnectedness.

This manifested as a centralized ‘cube’ that provides the amenities and storage required by each room adjacent to it. Each of the faces serves one of the three defined spaces; the living and dining area, the bedroom and office, and the kitchen.Save this picture!Courtesy of Echo Design + ArchitectureThe cube’s simple white panels and recessed pulls are as ubiquitous to each room as the Douglas Fir plank floors to provide a simple continuity that encourages tranquility in the resident’s otherwise enterprising life. To increase quietude, the street-facing living and dining room have a large high pile rug and are lined with curtains to reduce the murmur of the Flatiron District.With a modest palette of white, tan, and grays we are able to highlight key elements in each room without any over-embellishment. As each space is comprised of a loose collection of furniture, we elected to use warmer oak and walnut furniture to contrast the white washed wood floors and avoid the distraction of an entirely foreign material.Save this picture!Courtesy of Echo Design + ArchitectureThe Result is a Home Whose Cornerstones are Wellness and Efficiency. Throughout the process, the client expressed the need to be able to wind down after long and demanding days. As the owner of small businesses, the entrepreneur lifestyle requires constant ingenuity that becomes very taxing. The simple interiors and efficiently organized space allow them to avoid unwanted distractions and focus on recovering physical and mentally from a day’s challengesSave this picture!Courtesy of Echo Design + ArchitectureProject gallerySee allShow lessPLC House / Catalina Lanza Castelli + AR ArquitectosSelected ProjectsAnne Frank House Museum Cafe / NamelokSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Flatiron District, New York, NY, United StatesLocation to be used only as a reference.

Leftist Rebels Free Two Hostages in Colombia

first_img Leftist rebels on 16 February released two hostages they had promised to free, the International Committee of the Red Cross said. “The ICRC confirms the release of major (Guillermo) Solorzano and corporal (Salin) Sanmiguel,” a spokeswoman for the international humanitarian group said at the airport in Cali, 500 kilometers southwest of the capital, where they arrived moments after her statement was made. The men were expected to have been freed on 12 February. However false release coordinates were received by the mission picking them up, according to the government, and the operation was pushed back. By Dialogo February 18, 2011last_img read more
