Let There Be Light: Architect Niv Ben-Adi New Jersey Coop Renovation

Photography by Mark Roskums

Taking advantage of copious natural light and breathtaking views of Manhattan, architect Niv Ben-Adi of atelier036 created free-flowing spaces on both the living/entertainment and private levels of this Fort Lee, New Jersey duplex apartment in a contemporary style building.

On the first floor, existing walls and built-in elements were removed to make the combined kitchen, dining and living room areas a single, accessible space with a wall of light from the combined windows overlooking the view. Separate spaces were carved out for a powder room and coat closets.

On the upper level, the master bedroom was designed as an open space with a king sized bed facing a large window overlooking the Hudson River and the New York City panorama. The bedroom area is distinguished by subtle architectural elements and keep it open but with an abiding sense of privacy. For the accompanying master bath, Niv designed a shower stall with a sheet of glass that allows anybody showering a view through the bedroom and beyond the windows to the sky and cityscape beyond.

To echo the architectural style of the spaces, Niv specified a balanced monochromatic color scheme for the walls, fixtures and architectural enhancements.
