A walnut framed glass partition replaced a typical wall to add light and spaciousness to this cookie cutter one bedroom apartment. New wood cladding and linen curtains add warmth. The furnishings, including custom silk carpets, take color cues not only from the woodwork but also from the adjacent limestone building, which dominates the view through the floor to ceiling windows. The same curtains are used on both interior and exterior glazing, further linking the light and texture of the city to the apartment interior.
