The American Institute of Architects (AIA) Westchester + Hudson Valley Chapter has awarded Carol Kurth Architecture, PC the 2016 Design Honor Award for their design of Skyline17, a modern Manhattan apartment. Architect and interior designer Carol Kurth, FAIA, ASID, and her design team celebrated the prestigious win at the Chapter’s Design Awards ceremony held at the Regeneron Headquarters in Tarrytown, NY. The AIA Westchester + Hudson Valley Design Awards program recognizes projects designed by chapter members “that make a positive aesthetic contribution to the built environment.”

Skyline17 is a modernist transformation of a luxury Manhattan apartment. Ms. Kurth and her design team combined two apartments into one gallery-like living space with floor-to-ceiling views of the city and glimpses of the Hudson River. In addition to creating a stunning architectural backdrop, Ms. Kurth designed custom furniture and curated select art pieces for the project. The award-winning design features layers of industrial textures, lush materiality, and extensive glass walls that highlight the gorgeous panoramic skyline view. The jury praised “the project’s beautiful detailing and excellent craftsmanship.”

“We enjoy working in an urban context and this NYC apartment was the perfect opportunity to create a cohesive architectural vision complete with custom furnishings. Our clients gave us an incredible canvas to create this bold, luxurious backdrop for living. We are honored that Skyline17 has been recognized for its architectural and interior design and thank AIA Westchester + Hudson Valley for this recognition,” said Ms. Kurth.
