WEST SIDE RESIDENCE

NEW YORK, NY

When designing this Upper West Side abode, GRADE worked closely with the client, NBA athlete Emeka Okafor, to create a tranquil, chic home that accommodates his extraordinary stature. The result is an elegant contemporary escape from the bustling streets below. Draped in muted hues of grey, mauve and sea foam the space evokes an instantaneous welcoming calm. Featuring oversized sofas, a custom-made bed and extra-tall doorways the residence truly feels larger than life. The team at GRADE utilized rich stained wood panels in the entry hall to create a clean organization upon arrival in the space as well as accents of silk, suede and cashmere to up the lush factor. A built in banquette adjacent to the modern, white kitchen gives way to flexible lounge seating when not dining. (Sq ft: 3,875)
