Wellbuilt’s “Mitch Kidd” was quoted in the New York Observer September 30th alongside “Samantha Knapp” of Tiger Lilly’s Greenwich . The author, Rebecca Morse, whose assignment it was to capture the value pre-war architectural detail in “Brand new” New York apartment buildings interviewed the pair for this story.
The master bedroom project incorporated the fusion of two personal styles. Designer Samantha Knapp of Tiger Lily’s Greenwich was charged with the task of blending the best of His-and-Her style with old and new items for this luxury New York City apartment.
The result is a cozy but spacious bedroom that balances the client’s love for modern yet traditional design sensibilities. The color palette and texture in this room are tied to the rest of the home, yet it is decidedly more modern than other living spaces, such as the master bathroom.
A completed project in a 2,500 sq ft luxury loft apartment in West Chelsea. Nestled among a sea of hip art galleries, This dwelling is a contemporary condo overlooking one of the hottest attractions in NYC – the High Line.
While most of the building’s exterior is stainless steel panels designed to beautifully reflect light shifts and seasonal changes, apartment interiors offer sleek, minimalist architecture with 9’8″ high ceilings, geometric window arrangements and plenty of light. (more…)

Anyone fortunate to see inside the new 18 Gramercy park New York luxury development is immediately surrounded by an impeccable display of contemporary design, and elegance. Zeckendorf Development and Robert A.M. Stern Architects have done an amazing job of restoring this 1927 building into a gracious new parkside home in the city.
Wellbuilt Company is honored to be teaming up with BBauer Ventures, llc, Fortuna Living & Farrow & Ball for the TREVOR PROJECT Spring event.. One lucky bidder gets us for a custom Design & Build Project of their choice.
We recently attended the launch of Developer Jonathon Carroll’s Soho Penthouse, which has just been placed on the market with Kane Manera of Douglas Elliman Luxury lofts. The space was impeccably renovated by Australian-born architect Sally Rigg and was obviously designed for someone who loves to entertain and throw lavish parties. There is an abundance of windows and natural light flooding through. This Cool New York Luxury loft just might be one of the best seats to experience the 4th of July fireworks on The Hudson River. See more pictures at designer Carolyn Cerminara‘s Blog.
In 2012 Wellbuilt Company had the honor of participating on a renovation project in Wilton, Connecticut for Town & Country Editor-In-Chief, Jay Fielden. The beautiful, midcentury home was almost lost completely in 2010 when an electrical fire destroyed almost everything inside. Fortunately, Jay, his wife Yvonne and their three children escaped unharmed. Perhaps not ironically, most of Jay’s collection of architecture books survived the fire but if you look closely you can still see the smoky silhouettes on them.
Wellbuilt’s role was part of a larger collaboration with a number of brilliant designers and builder, but our primary focus consisted of the manufacture and installation of a custom master walk-in closet, designed by Melanie Charlton at Clos-ette llc.

Some delicious meals will be cooked in this kitchen, no doubt! For more details & photos of before and after go to Erin’s blog, Elements of Style.
We’re closing in on this Kitchen renovation for Erin Gate’s of Elements of Style.
Cabinets are a key part of any kitchen design, and the the biggest investment. Erin has selected Brazilian quartzite slabs for the countertop, Hardware from Colonial Bronze, a Blanco sink from Waterspot, and Benjamin Moore’s Cape May Cobblestone…. just to name a few custom elements to this Wellbuilt kitchen.
