As a resident of the East Village, I'm not sure why anyone would build a luxury doorman building on 7th Street between Avenues C & D — but apparently someone did
and then Anil Shrivastava and Namita Luthra bought an apartment and hired architects at Pulltab Design
to create a modernist retreat. The New York Times
shows the beautifully simple space that features a polished concrete floor, reflecting pool, ivy wall and pull-down/flip up tables hidden in a large paneled wall...I'm fond of the hidden pops of color (like behind the drop-down table for 10) and the tasteful floor-to-ceiling windows. Not too keen on the reflecting pool though...
See the full article, Indian Modern Redux, and all the pictures in the slideshow.
There are even more images of the space on the Pulltab Design site (7th Street Residence).
