Union Street Residence is a 1,854 square foot apartment in Brooklyn, New York with interior design by Workstead. The designers added richness and warmth to the space through the use of beautiful materials, and maximised storage space with the addition of millwork pieces including a media unit in walnut timber, and a bar/music station. The living room features floor to ceiling windows which provide a clear view of the treetops beyond, and this greenery is repeated indoors through the use of plants. The furniture and accessories incorporate a mix of old and new, with many items from local stores in Brooklyn. Workstead incorporated artwork very personal to the clients, including a large photograph by one of the clients’ father, which features in the dining room just next to Light Table by Matthew Hilton.
