Avenue 8 was a challenging project because it entailed the reuse and repurposing of an existing concrete structure,” says Anne Rosen of Zing Design & Development. Rosen is part owner and served as the developer for the Avenue 8 at Mayfair apartment complex, and she was the driver behind the updated mid-century modern design directive. Rosen worked closely with Aneka Kerlin and her team at Aneka Interiors to realize common spaces—from a cozy den and TV lounge to a yoga room and indoor dog playground— that are color saturated but restrained.
“I love the vibrant colors and patterns that play into the mid-century modern theme,” says Kerlin. “We used current color palates with mid-mod furniture frame styles and patterns to create an updated mid-mod building.”
“Apartment communities are both residential and commercial,” Rosen adds. “Creating a living environment that makes residents feel at home and safe and encourages a neighborhood culture is paramount.”
