The converted locker rooms of the first YMCA in the United States ( see more here ), Cindy Gallop’s “Black Apartment” was designed by New York-based creative agency “The Apartment.”  Highly ornate, down to the last detail, this is an amazing retrofit that seems to have deliberately retained a lot of the general layout used by the youth group, and built on that theme with luxury items, higher-quality materials and a stronger, darker color scheme.  In fact, the open and flowing quality of the interior space seems perfectly suited for those strong accents, whether they be wide sofas, smooth, reflective chandeliers, or large works of religious art.  The balance between modern and classic elements is absolutely perfected in the Black Apartment, and serves as a fantastic testament to the strengths of designer Stefan Boublil and his team at “The Apartment.” – visit their website for more
