Annabelle Selldorf: A German in New York

May 3, 2012

We're always interested to see how architects live at home; especially architects like NYC-based Annabelle Selldorf, who grew up in Cologne, Germany, and describes her practice as one of "subtle interventions rather than grand gestures or monumental statements."

Her own two-bedroom apartment in New York features a highly personal, eclectic mix of pieces designed by her father (an architect), her mother (an interior designer), as well as by Selldorf herself. To see more of her work, go to Annabelle Selldorf.
