LIC-21 Residence
Long Island City, Queens, New York • 2007


A dingy shoebox apartment was transformed to a sprawling artist’s residence and studio. After excavation into the walls and ceilings the space was reassembled in layers to improve its physical and visual flow, making it feel much larger than its actual 860 square feet. Vibrant orange pocket doors are conceptually linked, reinforcing the perceived vastness and separating private rooms from entertaining spaces. Strategic lighting and slit windows between the kitchen, bath, office, and hallway further amplify the dynamic interconnected volumes.
