Describe the project, what makes it unusual, and/or any outstanding characteristics.
This post-modern second home for a busy NYC family, located in the picturesque Ardsley Park neighborhood, is surrounded by a serene landscape. Originally designed by Hardy Holzman Pfeiffer Associates, the house features an unusual angular plan and soaring ceiling above the living-dining space. The existing kitchen and the master bath, however, were in serious need of an update. Clients turned to their architect, David Bucovy, to reconfigure those rooms while staying true to the original architecture.
The master bathroom was reconfigured to create the space for the walk-in closet. Its central feature was the freestanding tub underneath the small square window framed by the teak border, a wood species also used to fabricate the custom-built floating vanity and the tall storage cabinet. LED lighting was incorporated in the design and construction of the medicine cabinet to create a gentle glow.
All new millwork elements feature a warm-toned palette designed to complement the post-modern aesthetic of the client’s home and provide a sense of well-being to its inhabitants..
