A weekly preview of participating sites and programs in the 11th Annual OHNY Weekend on October 12 & 13, 2013.  This week, check out a preview of some of the residences that are part of Designers’ Open House,OHNY’s collaboration with Interior Design Magazine.  For the second year in a row, the editors of Interior Design Magazine have curated a selection of private residences of some of the city’s best designers and architects for OHNY Weekend allowing visitors the rare chance to see how these designers live at home!  


Brad Zizmor Residence

Once a dark and cramped apartment previously occupied by the building’s superintendent, the family residence of Brad Zizmor of Architecture + Information has been renovated to seamlessly integrate indoor and outdoor space.  The outdoor living room and dining area is visually connected to each room, and at the same time, exterior materials also pass indoors, connecting the two environments.



Desai Chia Architecture Loft

Architects Arjun Desai and Katherine Chia of Desai/Chia Architecture have created a contemporary space that serves as both a residential loft for a family of four, as well as a laboratory for the design ideas that they implement in many of their projects.



Gwathmey Siegel Architects Apartment

Located along the Hudson River, the modernist apartment of Robert Siegel of Gwathmey Siegel Architects combines two adjacent apartments in a high-rise condominium filled with Bauhaus furniture and large-scale murals.



Suchi Reddy Apartment

Formerly a dentist’s office and now the home of  Suchi Reddy of Reddymade Design, this 375-square foot apartment maximizes every inch to create a super-functional space.  Renovations play with the illusion of space, from a queen-size sleeping alcove to recessed walls that hold bookshelves. A dining room for 8 can be converted into a living room by lifting the table into the air and out of the way using cables.



Kathryn Scott Design Studio Brownstone

This Italianate brownstone is the home of interior designer Kathryn Scott and artist Wenda Gu, as well as the office of Kathryn Scott Design Studio.  The product of a 13-year renovation, the residence combines the owners’ own heirlooms and style with the restoration of much of the brownstone’s original architectural elements.
