Designed for nocturnal entertaining, this New York penthouse apartment on the 13th street in the city’s East Village was imagined by Jane Kim Design in collaboration with Ben Shulman. The dark spaces with carefully re-imagined details like raw wood and exposed brick walls exudes masculinity and style. The 13th Street Penthouse showcases masculine details throughout, from the deep dark colors to the sleek design lines. Stainless steel appliances in the open kitchen were matched with glossy surfaces breaking the monotony and adding an extra dimension to the space.
Reclaimed wood was used to dress up the walls, as well as the kitchen counter, creating a fascinating result. By exposing the brick walls, a stylishly raw living environment was created. natural light floods the apartment via dark-framed windows and bounces off the remaining white walls. The stair leading up to the private area was stripped to its raw steel finish, maintaining the same overall design concept. Photographed by Alan Tansey, the home was designed in detail to offer its owners a simple and stylish entertaining environment. The bathrooms were not forgotten: the blue, white and grey master bath placed under a skylight reinforces the connection to the outdoors, while the guest bath shower is lined with textured slate and showcases a floor clad in striped Moroccan tile.
