Working in close collaboration with our client, an art and design collector, and interior designer Christine Van Deusen, Deborah Berke Partners completed the gut renovation of a duplex penthouse on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Inspired by the interwar modernism of France and Austria, the apartment combines classic New York with European living to create a cosmopolitan family residence.

Up on the top floor, a rimless skylight allows the changing sky and natural light to animate the hallway and the curved plaster wall and staircase below.
