New York design firm General Assembly (GA) has given a contemporary remodel to a duplex condo in New York City.  GA was hired by a west coast couple relocating to New York city to help renovate a duplex apartment in the East Village. The existing space had potential, but was inefficient and lacking in character. GA opened the kitchen out to the living room and rearranged the layout to provide more cooking and entertaining friendly environment.  Upstairs rooms were decreased from two to one. The washroom which included a clothing range and expanded storage room with extra storerooms was reduced. Full height sliding pocket doors improved circulation upstairs and allowed more light in to brighten the halls.  GA combined modern details with warmer materials like dark flooring and a reclaimed wood wall to keep things comfortable yet clean, bringing a bit of a West Coast vibe into a new East Coast home.contemporary-apartment_290515_02
