“Seeds of Change” – Boutique Lobby in Chelsea
Since the 20’s the Chelsea District has been New York’s premier contemporary art district. With its industrial roots, the district was known as a place of the arts and artist with galleries such as the famous Milk Gallery overlooking the High Line or the Chelsea Hotel where Iconic figures lived. Over time and many developments later, the area has given rise to artistic urban developments such as the High Line, Chelsea Market, the Rubin Museum of Art, the new Whitney Museum, all transforming the neighborhood with a mix of architectural blends; industrial landmarks and new avant-garde structures.
Our design vision is – the “Seed” that has transformed Chelsea, has planted itself in the foundation of 155 W 23rd Street. As the “seed” grew, it became part of the architectural language of the space, transforming the interior into a serene environment.
