Industrial interior inspiration
I can honestly say that I love every single space in the inspiration board for this apartment design.

The Floor Plan
Moving on to the floor plan for this NYC apartment design, which started out as a 1200 sq ft empty box.
The space needed separating into areas designated for sleeping, eating, working, etc. Because the windows run solely along one side of the unit, I put all the living spaces on that side, and placed the more utilitarian spaces – kitchen, bathrooms, laundry – against the darker back wall.
I kept most of the unit open-plan, but defined spaces for living and dining with big area rugs, and created an entryway with a big closet and another, smaller rug. The second bathroom is big enough to add in a shower stall, and the bonus room could serve as storage, a guest room, an office or a workout room.
An office space doesn’t have to be big, but it makes a huge difference if it looks intentional. Building it into a nook between the bedroom and the bonus room achieves that.
I had to incorporate some of the client’s existing furnishings. The mood board shows those existing pieces on the left, and some new additions on the right.
