Sketch Pad: SoHo Walk-Up

With a lack of natural light, odd layout and tiny bedrooms, this SoHo fourth floor walk-up is a challenging space. Because of its setbacks, this two bedroom unit on Prince Street is a deal for the neighborhood and architect Adam Kushner tackles the theoretical design with bold ideas...

Kushner, of Kushner Studios Architecture & Design radically alters the floor plan. He adds exterior windows (including one in the new shower) to the back of the building and redesigns the fire escape. There are many ideas for altering a space. Because of the apartment's small size, the cost of renovation and remodel is not excessive. Check out the theoretical design in Sketch Pad: A Shower Stall With a View. There is also an audio slide show with the architect.
