Posted May 08, 2019 07:13:49 A little over a year ago, the Brooklyn-based architect and designer Baers took the plunge on his second major project.
This time around, the new home was designed to have the feel of a modern, mid-century modern house in the New York City borough of Manhattan, as well as the feel and feel of an older, more luxurious style in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Hollywood.
In both cities, the result is an apartment complex designed to be both homey and intimate.
“We wanted to build something that was truly unique and personal,” said Baers, who also designed the new residences for his clients.
“The idea was to bring back an older house that was meant to be a little more intimate and more personal, a little bit more timeless.
That’s what we wanted to do, and we achieved that.”
The finished home has three levels of living spaces.
The first is a small room that is a combination of a living room and kitchen, while the second has a full kitchen and living room.
The third, which is a living and dining room, has an out-of-the-way patio.
The finished project, which will be completed in 2021, is slated to have a total of 1,700 square feet of living space, which Baers says is a significant number for an apartment that is supposed to have 2,500 square feet.
In addition to his work on the Brooklyn apartment, Baers also designed a home in the former French Embassy in Paris, as a “personalized personal retreat for a senior citizen.”
Baers also worked on a new building in the historic downtown of New York.
The project, designed by the New Jersey-based firm Liguori, includes an entry level living room, a large kitchen with a dining room and a second, smaller kitchen.
The building also includes a full bedroom, living room with a separate bathroom and a kitchen with an additional kitchenette.
Baes also designed an apartment for a young couple in New Orleans, Louisiana.
