25 East End Avenue

With breathtaking views of the East River, this prewar apartment had awkwardly configured bathrooms and a humdrum kitchen. The new plan will open up views to the river from every room and incorporate completely new designs for the bathrooms, affording more functional, elegant layouts. A new kitchen will be open to the dining room, sharing daylight and multiple river views to the east and south. Bookshelves flanking the fireplace dramatize the connection between the spaces and unify the large living area with the rooms beyond.
