Maison Ivy

Program: Residence
Client: Private
Year: 2017
Location: Provence, France

The circa 18th century facades of this mention hidden among the beautiful hills of Provence may read rustic. But behind the door of this particular residence, stained and natural oak are paired to impart a contemporary aesthetic that better showcases the client’s sophisticated taste. The basic monochromatic grey palette of the kitchen acts as a unifying leitmotif between the strong presence of the nature that surrounds the villa and the sophisticated finishes used for the other spaces of the house. Dark stained solid oak, brass and charred wood are the protagonists of the living. Natural oak and reclaimed wood make the 2 large bedrooms less formal and cozier.

Sky Loft

Year: 2016
Location: Manhattan, New York

The solution for this exemplar in Downtown, which fortunately was blessed with premium skyline views, was to relieve the interior ordinariness by stimulating the senses with tactile variety. ETAD created a complexly layered textural palette that injects visual adrenaline into the architectural envelope. Plaster grey, reclaimed wood and colorful bluish wall paper rising from walnut and porcelain floors.

Zucker's Bagels & Smoked Fish

Program: Restaurant [ RZAPS design & photography]
Client: Zucker's Holdings
Year: 2016
Location: Manhattan, New York

A soon to become neighborhood gathering spot for the Upper West Side. The primarily use of steel (patina finish) and wood (white oak) for the furniture create a dialogue with the sofisticated historic elements (tin ceiling and cast iron columns).
The inviting design of the lower floor of this historic 19th Century building combines modern materials with restored historic architectural elements that have been long obscured. Highlighting a decorative tin ceiling and the beautiful cast iron exterior, the project required approval from the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission as part of the Central Park West Historic District.

CB Insights Office

Program: Office Renovation [ RZAPS design & photography]
Client: CB Insights
Year: 2016
Location: Manhattan, New York

The project creates continuous spaces that are tailored to specific office uses. Natural light penetrates the center of the office, through the glass panels dividing the open floor from conference rooms and the lounge area. The muted colors of white walls and poured concrete floors create continuity between the spaces, and match the natural tones of the wood panel closets and tables in the cafeteria.
Translucent orange panels divide the kitchen and eating areas from the office space. The result is a mix of distinct yet connected work and relaxation zones.
