With a new baby on the way, this family of four was outgrowing their two-bedroom apartment and wanted to expand. Their solution was to buy the loft apartment upstairs and completely renovate the space to create a new safe haven. wUNDERground and Design Development worked together to create a new plan that provided 3,600 sq ft of shared family space downstairs and private rooms upstairs. The bottom floor offers up a large family room, along with a kitchen, formal living room and dining room. The upper floor has three bedrooms, a shared work area and a master suite.

The space was completely gutted and rebuilt first to improve the thermal and acoustic performance of the exterior walls with CityProof windows, a re-caulked and bio-spray insulated perimeter and recycled denim insulation. Heating is provided via radiant floor heating. Filters were installed for drinking water and the showers while a humidifier and air scrubbers improve the air quality. VOCs were eliminated in all the finishes and custom interior details were handcrafted at Design Developmentā€™s workshops in Queens. All these strategies work to reduce allergens, improve indoor air quality and minimize adverse health affects. The interior design work was completed by Damon Liss Design.
