Best Professionally Designed Dining Space Winner: MNA

August 14, 2013

New York-based MNA was asked to transform an apartment in a 1920s-era building originally used as a hospital. The challenge was to transform the eighties industrial aesthetic into something “warmer and more timeless,” according to the firm.

MNA’s approach was to bring in a mix of textures, from white oak paneling to limestone flooring, to create a rich, warm, natural palette in the 2,500-square-foot apartment. Polished black lacquer cabinets and a hand wax finish on the oak paneling add another layer of textural quality that all helped to turn the industrial space into an “updated interpretation of a grand 19th century penthouse.” To see more of the firm’s work, go to MNA.
