Preparing the home for the upcoming baby is still a pleasing and also challenging task done by most people. This also happened to one of MKCA clients from New York who wanted their one bedroom apartment ready for welcoming the little new family member.
For a regular one bedroom apartment in New York, space often gives restriction for extra load. Luckily, the Plaza Apartment still spares some small space which was previously an underused closet site and unorganized working space that can be reset as a minimalist nursery room, a library, and a new working space.
Efficient Rearrangement with Artistic Design
At glance, the new rearrangement seems very ordinary with maximizing one corner of the apartment as new functional space for nursery room. The distinction is on the selection of the materials and purposeful enhancement to make sure a proper usability and livability.
Looking closely, the efficient new partition in the foyer space is the first that we can look that is now used as effective book shelves and storage. Light materials of the book shelve seems so effective to give simple accent without forgetting the function and strength. This material keeps away over-sized display that will take most of breathable ambient while entering the rooms.
Behind this foyer partition, the integrated shelves and storage for the nursery is set on the same wall. The light shelves is concerted to the another side to ensure the strength is on both side.
Looking closer, the engraved panel surface is one interesting part that we should not skip from this apartment. The upper cove of light helps this artistic wavy pattern to lit up during the day and night. This design is very nice for every space including in the new nursery room while it can help friendly ambiance that good for the baby’s sensing.
Effective design of the working bench is also the focal element in this home. The sliding panel right in the front of the desk can improve the air flow to the nursery room as it can he also help the parents to work and watching out the baby in the same moment.
