ICRAVE Built an Indoor Neighborhood for this Luxury Development

Interior designers, and our friends, ICRAVE‘s mission was to create a self-sufficient neighborhood-within-a-building for (other friends) SLCE Architects‘ 21 West End. Aiding them in this pursuit was a commodious underground space originally designated as a parking garage, which they’ve turned into a 30,K SqFt amenity space, featuring a library, wine lockers, a carpentry workshop, a lounge, soundproof spaces with a karaoke machine and a room-size golf simulator, storage units for residents, a dog playground and pet spa, and also a gym for human use with a yoga studio and an indoor pool. There’s even a real wooden dinosaur in a child’s play area. In addition to housing a lot of stuff, the amenities complex constitutes a self-contained neighborhood, in the metaphysical sense: a place which invokes a sense of community and of being a public, – and this is a great idea because this building is on the Upper West Side, which arguably isn’t a neighborhood at all.
