Workbook: Making Every Inch Count

Doing a lot with a little. For architects tasked with remodeling small New York apartments, that’s the battle cry. And it’s the approach Asifa Tirmizi, of Tirmizi Campbell, took when she set out to revamp a couple’s pied a terre in an historic Manhattan building. The residents wanted something clean and contemporary—with a few rustic touches in a nod to the wife’s equestrian bent—and were referred on to Tirmizi’s firm, which had completed renovations for several other residents.

“They had a wish list,” says Tirmizi. “They wanted an open kitchen, a renovated bathroom and exposed brick,” to name a few requests, although a wholesale reconfiguration wasn’t possible. For the kitchen, Tirmizi and her team dramatically rethought the layout, pulling out a low wall so that it now flows into the main lower level living space. Counter space, always at a premium in these apartments, has been expanded, in part because the architects opted for an under-counter refrigerator. For additional storage, custom teak cabinets now line the wall beneath the stair.
