Columbia University, Executive Residential Apt, Manhattan, NY

One of Columbia University’s more gracious apartments is in a building distinguished by a curved exterior that arcs from Columbia’s entry gates at Broadway and 116th Street to provide views of the Hudson River along Riverside Drive. The architect’s goal was to improve the quality of the entertaining spaces while providing greater privacy for the family areas. Interior walls were positioned carefully, to be in harmony with the curved building façade. The architect custom designed crown moldings, interior doors, cabinetry and bookcases to enhance the proportions of the apartment and to accommodate the client’s collection of 7,000 books.
