Dash Marshall Anchors a TriBeCa Pied-à-Terre With a Calm Kitchen
2021 Best of Year winner for Kitchen
For their TriBeCa pied-à-terre, a young professional couple was seeking a home that would keep the stresses of outside life out and “hush the hustle,” as Dash Marshall partner Ritchie Yao puts it. Yao worked with the clients to develop an open plan that would flow with their daily routines as well as reference their Chinese heritage by keeping in dialogue with the principals of feng shui. It was those teachings that led them toward gently curving forms and away from the “poison arrows” of sharp corners. Without walls between rooms, spaces are instead differentiated with subtle variations in color and material.
Anchoring the 1,800 square feet is a kitchen wrapped in solid white oak tambour that gives the apartment its nickname. The material’s warmth is complimented by 8-inch-wide floor planks in bone white walnut and the glowing finish of the furnishings, like the pendant globes by Ladies and Gentlemen Studio and the unlacquered brass ladder, a custom feature that’s both sculptural and functional, as it can be moved to access the top shelves of the hidden cabinetry. The wood-metallic combination extends into the adjacent dining room via walnut furniture and a golden disc of a pendant, continuing the serenity and calm, while the living/reading area’s brick is cozy and cocooning.
