Sometimes a design problem can work its way into a great design solution. Such is the case with this remodel featured in New York Magazine.
Removing a wall during the remodel of this Upper East Side apartment left the plumbing without a place to hide. Rather than re-routing everything to another wall, a rather expensive proposition, Studio Schofield made the bold move of leaving the plumbing right where it was. Or rather, they gathered everything into a central column, using it to visually anchor the room.
And if that wasn't clever enough for you, they added some custom designed spice racks to add some much needed storage.
