Home in Little Italy
Audax converted a floor of a commercial building downtown into a family-friendly home. The interior layout was modeled after a New York style apartment and includes all the comforts of a house including a formal foyer, three bedrooms, two washrooms, an open-concept living, kitchen and dining room, and a generously sized laundry room. The homeowners also enjoy direct access to their unit from the street with a private elevator. The interior design features a harmonious mix of modern and traditional elements. To create a warm and cozy base, Audax selected a herringbone wood floor and traditional door casing, trim and hardware. The traditional envelope is then layered with modern luxuries, including a sleek and contemporary-styled kitchen and modern Italian-inspired furniture. Many of the pieces used in the home are from Audax’s very own furniture collection, including the Evelyn Armchair, Vasari Dining Table, Raphael Dining Chair and the Donatello Console. Unique to the property, Audax designed a winter garden which is an enclosed living room that has operable windows on three sides. When the windows are opened in the summertime, the living space is converted into a covered terrace. This allows the residents to enjoy a private open-air space in lieu of a backyard, which can also be used year-round as indoor space.
