East Meets West in This New York Bathroom by Grade
2022 Best of Year Winner for Bath
Inside an undulating ground-up condominium tower in downtown Manhattan, the 4,600-square-foot apartment presented Grade with the opportunity to create a completely unique floor plate. That means interior architecture and detailing for the powder room walls and vanity and for the main bathroom’s vanity, shower, and millwork that all directly relate to the building’s exterior curves. Texture in the powder room was used to create the feeling of Middle Eastern and Mediterranean baths via mosaic tiling paired with warm stone and raw copper fixtures. The main bathroom skews more Zen, courtesy of a custom wooden Japanese soaking tub. Like with the powder room, Grade selected a large marble block for its fully carved double vanity and sinks. The stone, which had to be craned into the residence due to its size and weight, was selected for its beautiful imperfections (areas are visibly permeated by iron) and juxtaposition with the airier aesthetic of the millwork and tub.
