A penthouse apartment on Park Avenue South had wrap around views in the bedroom and den, but the living, dining, and kitchen areas were dark and closed in. Drop ceilings were removed in the dining area and simulated skylights were used to brighten the windowless kitchen. Railings were added at existing parapets so that balconies could be occupied. New windows and doors, wide plank quarter sawn oak floors and central air conditioning were installed. Photos by Finn Fons.
