Union Square Apartment

  • Since the dining area also services as the arrival point into the apartment, it required a balance of form and function. The space is anchored by a custom banquette and a walnut topped dining table combined with a sculpture modern pendant by Pallucco and a pair of equally angular geometric gouache paintings by Doug Holst.


The client, a young banker, was thrilled to purchase this first apartment in New York City overlooking bustling Union Square.

With some small architectural changes to the original layout Glenn Gissler Design was able to improve the functionality of the open floorplan, while creating a warm and inviting interior.

A new wall added between the kitchen and living room allowed for additional storage in the kitchen while added a discrete place to install a large television. The new living room configuration allowed for a 10’ sofa perfect for lounging and entertaining for the young client.
